4.Press dough out to 2cm thickness. Dip 4.5cm cutter into flour, cut as many rounds as you can from the piece of dough. Place scones side by side, just touching, in pan Gently knead scraps of dough together, repeat pressing and cutting of dough. Place in same pan. Brush tops with a little extra milk.

When a recipe says “cut” the liquid through the dry ingredients, it means don’t stir, just use a knife quickly and lightly to draw the knife through the flour, so moistening the dry ingredients as lightly as possible. This is done to stop you overworking the flour — which causes tough scones.
