Wholemeal Herb Scones Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 12

100 g/4 oz butter or margarine

175 g/6 oz wholemeal (wholewheat) flour
50 g/2 oz plain (all-purpose) flour
10 ml/2 tsp baking powder
30 ml/2 tbsp chopped fresh sage or thyme
150 ml milk

Method:

Rub the butter or margarine into the flours and baking powder until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the herbs and enough of the milk to make a soft dough. Knead lightly, then roll out to about 1 cm/0.5 in thick and cut into 5 cm/2 in rounds with a biscuit (cookie) cutter. Place the scones (biscuits) on a greased baking (cookie) sheet and brush the tops with milk. Bake in a preheated oven at 220C/425F/gas mark 7 for 10 minutes until risen and golden brown.
