Taste the best Scone, you will need to make these easy to prepare Scones with Sour Milk!
Yes, Sour Milk is the secret ingredient, and do not knead the dough! All you require to do would be gently patting the ingredients together to form and shape the dough.
Lightly pat it on a floured surface into ± 2cm thickness.
Use a small scone cutter to dip in flour before cutting the shapes.
Do not twist and turn the cutter, rather press down, and lift the cut scone shape up and place it directly on the baking tray.

How do I get my scones to rise and be fluffy?
First, make sure you are using fresh baking powder, one that has been opened less than 6 months ago. Also, if you knead the dough too much, the scones will not rise as tall. Knead gently, and just enough to bring the dough together. Adding more flour also prevents the dough from rising as high, so only dust lightly.
