Very Easy

Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
1 tablespoon Orange Blossom Water

400 g Self Raising Flour

60 g butter

1 egg, whisked

50 g icing sugar

100 g dried figs, chopped

70 g walnuts, chopped

milk

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees centigrade. Place flour into a bowl and add the butter.
  • Rub butter and flour together until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the chopped figs, walnuts, sugar and orange blossom.
  • Combine ingredients and form a well in the centre to add liquid.
  • Add the egg and enough milk to form a soft dough (save a little of the egg for glazing the tops of scones before cooking).
  • Transfer dough onto a floured board and press the dough out with hands (rather than using a rolling pin) until it is about 2 cm thick.
  • Either use a round cookie cutter to cut out the scones or slice the scones into squares.
  • Place on a floured baking sheet and brush tops of scones with a little egg. Bake for 20 minutes until risen and golden brown.
