(Or "biscuits" to my American friends. What we call biscuits, you call cookies. Confusing?)

This is such an easy recipe I thought I'd share. (Also because I haven't posted in a while. Don't worry. I have shoots coming up this and next weekend!)

3 cups of self-raising flour
1 cup of thickened cream
1 cup of lemonade (or Sprite to my American friends)

(These amounts actually make the dough quite wet and sticky, which is not right. You want to be able to handle the dough without it coming off on your fingers, so you can use less wet ingredients or more dry ingredients - whichever you fancy.)

Mix all ingredients together with a knife. Don't knead the dough or your scones will not be fluffy. Flour a work area and slightly flatten the dough. If you don't have cutters you can dip the rim of a drinking glass in flour and use it to cut your scones.

I don't really know what temperature I cook at. Maybe 180°C (356°F)? Then cook until they look a little toasty.

Obviously, I'm not a cook. Or very good at writing recipes. But these are the best scones I've ever tasted! They are a perfect breakfast food. Eat with strawberry jam (American = jelly. I mean really! We both speak English, why can't we just pick one word and that will be what everybody says?) and whipped cream.
