    1. In a bowl sift the flour, baking powder and salt then stir in the sugar.
    2. Using your fingertips lightly work in the butter until the mixture resembles dry breadcrumbs.
    3. Add the egg, cream and enough milk to moisten. Mix well until it has a soft, doughy texture, but it shouldn't be too moist.
    4. Gather the dough into a ball and turn it out on to a floured surface then roll lightly with a rolling pin to 2.5cm thick.
    5. Cut out with a round cutter then transfer to a greased baking tray and brush the tops with the egg/water glaze.
    6. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    7. Bake in preheated oven for 15- 20 minutes or until well browned.
