When you rub in the butter, don't put it in whole, but in several smaller sections.
Definitely the yummiest scones I've made. Thanks for the recipe. - 12 Sep 2016
Superb instructions and very tasty scones as a result. I did change the quantities as suggested by other comments though: 2 1/2 cups of self-raising flour (instead of 3 cups) and 1/3 tsp of salt and no sugar. Everyone loved the scones which we had with strawberry jam and clotted cream, the traditional Devonshire way. - 27 Sep 2015
I would have given you 5 stars. BUT FOR the sugar. real scones don't have sugar unless you are adding it to make a sweet scone, ie date scones ect. - 23 Mar 2014
