Christmas Scones
with clotted cream and jam

225g self raising flour
Pinch of salt
½tsp cinnamon powder
55g cold butter, diced
25g caster sugar
125mls milk
50g raisins or sultanas

To serve
Icing sugar
Strawberry or raspberry jam
Clotted cream

1. Tip the flour, salt, cinnamon or mixed spice and the butter into a chopping bowl / electric blender for a few seconds until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and the milk until it forms a soft dough.

2. Turn on to a floured work surface, add the raisins and knead very lightly. Pat out to a round 1½ to 2cm thick.
Use a 6cm cutter to cut out rounds, lightly knead together the rest of the dough and cut out more scones to use it all up.

Place on the low rack and then position the low rack on top of the high rack and put into the Halogen Oven. (This will make a criss cross surface to put the scones on keeping them flat).

3. Turn the temperature to 200°C and the timer to 10 minutes.
Turn the temperature down to 175°C for a further 5 minutes if they are golden but still soft underneath. When golden and risen remove from the oven on the rack and leave to cool.

Serve with strawberry or raspberry jam and some clotted cream or simply buttered.
Dust with a little icing sugar.
