Hot Cross Scones
  1. Pre heat oven to 200°C fan- forced and line a small baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Sift the self-raising flour into a mixing bowl. Rub the butter into the flour using your fingertips. Add the brown sugar, dried fruit and mixed spice and stir to combine.
  3. In a small bowl combine the egg and milk and mix to combine. Add to the flour mixture and mix until it just comes together to make a dough.
  4. Lightly dust your bench with flour and roll out the dough to be around 3cm thick. Cut rounds of the dough using a 6cm round cutter. Bring the trimmings together and cut out more. Place the scones onto the prepared baking tray.
  5. To make the crosses combine the plain flour and water until combined. Knead to make a smooth dough. Roll out and cut into thin 6cm strips. Make a cross with the dough on top of each scone. Bush the tops of the scones with milk and bake for 15 minutes or until golden.
  6. Serve warm or cold with lashings of Western Star Spreadable
Tips & Hints:
  • Scones are best eaten on the day they are made.
