Typically British homemade scones.
I've been making these for as long as I can remember and they taste amazing. When I made this batch, I ran out of self raising flour so they didn't rise as well.

    Add the milk, a little at a time, working to a smooth dough. DO NOT USE ALL THE MILK AT ONE, YOU DON'T ALWAYS NEED IT ALL. Leave for 10-15 minutes. Roll on a lightly floured work surface until 2cm thick. Use a pastry cutter, but DO NOT twist the dough when cutting as the scones will rise uneven.
