A pinch of salt

Mix together the flours, baking powder and salt. Rub in the butter or margarine until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar. Gradually mix in 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 bake in a preheated oven at 230C/450F/gas mark 8 for about 15 minutes until risen and golden brown. Serve warm.
