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


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.
