The trick to getting scones right is to be quite quick about making them. Don't handle the mixture any more than you have to, and don't add lots of flour when you're rolling it out. Also, remember that the baking powder will take effect as soon as you have added the liquid - the scones should be moved into the oven as soon as possible so that the raising agent can work its magic. Other than that, scones are a very simple way to fill your home with that wonderfully toasty, buttery baking smell.
Typical values per serving:
Per scone, with 1 tbsp clotted cream and 2 tsp jam
