Sour Cream Scones

Ingredients

Plain flour, for dusting

3 cups self-raising flour

80 g butter, cubed

1 to 1 ¼ cups sour cream

Jam and whipped cream, to serve

Method

 Preheat oven to 200°C.  Lightly dust a flat baking tray with plain flour.

Sift self-raising flour into a large bowl and place, together with butter, into a food processor and process until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Add  sour cream through the funnel of the food processor. Add more cream if required.  You can adjust the mixture with more flour if it is too wet.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until smooth.

Pat dough into a 2 cm-thick round. Using a 5 cm (diameter) round cutter, cut out 12 rounds. Press dough together and cut out remaining 4 rounds.

Place scones onto prepared baking  tray, 1 cm apart. Sprinkle tops with a little plain flour. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and well risen. Transfer to a wire rack.

Serve warm with jam and cream.
