Food Fare: English RecipesTea Scones

Sift the flour and baking soda in a bowl. Rub in the butter, and then mix in the sugar and currants (raisins). Bind with the beaten egg until dough is soft but not sticky. (Reserve a little egg or milk for glazing). Roll dough onto a floured surface to a thickness of about one inch. Cut out pieces with a fluted or rounded cutter, and place on greased cookie sheet. Brush with a beaten egg or milk. Bake at 450-degrees F for ten or fifteen minutes, or until the dough is well-risen and nicely browned. Serve warm with butter.


Note: It is important to use self-rising flour with this recipe. An English friend of mine told me the first time she used "all-purpose" flour to make tea scones, they came out like paving stones.
