Fruit Scones

Ingredients 8 oz Self Raising Flour
  0.5 tsp salt
  3 oz Margarine
  2 oz Sugar
  2 Eggs - medium
  3 oz Dried Fruit


Mix the flour, salt, sugar and margarine together to form crumbs.

Beat the egg and mix into the crumbs with the dried fruit.

Roll out the mixture on a floured board and cut with pastry cutters.  Place on a greased baking tray, brush with egg or milk.

Bake at 400F for 10 to 15 minutes

Scones are best baked and eaten within a couple of hours.  When I returned home from school and found these in the kitchen they were usually gone over tea-time once my brother and I got our hands on them.  They were always served with New Zealand Fernleaf butter but you can use Anchor - not the spreadable thank you - and some home made jam.
