I only knead for around 25 seconds maddy - will be interested to see how long those who know what they are doing do it for  ;D ;D

Made these today, I have never been any good at scones. I'm not really a scone fan *runs and rides*, but dh loves them.

Kneaded for 25 seconds, dough was still a little sticky, rolled it out gently, and baked.

Turned out beautifully, dh was very impressed, ran a plate round to dear Mum  for afternoon tea, she was also happy, will pop up a pic :)

I think I read somewhere on this forum some scone making tips that someone has recently posted. Does anyone know where they are, as they would be a good link for this recipe?

My Mom taught me how to make scones and she always said the less you handle the dough, the better the scone. So mix until it all just comes together then gently press out to about an inch thick before cutting. Other tips: 1) dip your knife/cookie cutter into flour before cutting - your scones will then rise straight up and not be lop-sided (don't use MC, it compresses the dough). 2) when you brush the top with milk, make sure you don't let any dribble down the side or that side will be "glued" together and your scone will rise lop-sided. 3) Press your dough out into two eqaul sized portions then give one a light spray of oil and place the other on top before final press and cutting out - makes your scones easy to split once baked.

Mmm - I only just bring dough together and knead only about 10sec. Put dough on floured thermomat and press out to about 2cm thick (flour top) and cut with floured MC.  ;)

Ok - on Hally's request I have attempted to turn this recipe into a cheese scone. This is what I did -
Grated 140g Cheese for 5 sec
Put the rest of ingredients in (510g flour, 3tsp baking powder, 200g cream, 200g milk, 3 pinches of salt, 2 pinches of cayenne pepper, 2 tsp parsley flakes) left the sugar out.
Bring dough together and knead only about 10sec. Put dough on floured thermomat and press out to about 2cm thick (flour top) and cut with floured MC.

Verdict - I am very happy with them (so light and fluffy!!) but think I would use Parmesan cheese if i had it (or at least 70g of it) so that it had a strong cheesy flavour. I'd love to hear feed back with different herbs or more pepper??
