1 free-range medium , lightly beaten
227g pot of Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream
200g good-quality strawberry jam
Rub the flour, butter, sugar and baking powder together to form a crumb.
Add the milk and form a smooth, soft dough with your hands.
Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to 2.5 cm thick and cut into rounds with a 5cm cutter. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Brush the tops of the scones twice with the beaten egg.
Bake in the oven for approximately 15 minutes. Do not over-bake them or they will be dry.
