Lakeland's Easy Scones

ingredients

* 375g self-raising flour
* 1 tbsp caster sugar
* ¼ tsp salt
* 30g butter
* 180ml milk
* 125ml water

method

1. Prepare a flat baking sheet. Sift flour, sugar and salt into a large bowl, rub in butter with fingertips.
2. Using a spatula, stir in the milk and enough water to make a sticky dough.
3. Turn dough onto a floured surface, knead quickly and lightly until smooth.
4. Use hand to press dough out evenly to 2cm (¾") thickness, cut into 5cm (2") rounds. Gently knead scraps of dough together and repeat pressing and cutting out of dough. Place rounds on baking sheet, brush with a little extra milk, if desired. Bake in a very hot oven for about 15 minutes. (I baked mine at 450F for ten minutes)
