"Real" Scones
# From:

Just to add to the confusion, here in NZ we also have Girdle (griddle)
scone.  Now I would think that the scones we have here are of English
origin.  Anyway, as promised here are a couple of scone recipes, the
sort typically made by every NZ housewife.


3 cups flour              
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
50g (2 ounces) butter
1 to 1 1/2 cups milk

Sift dry ingredients.  Rub in butter.  Add milk and quickly mix t a
soft dough with a knife.  Turn out on a floured board.  Pat into shape
about 3/4 inch thick.  Cut into scquares (or use a biscuit cutter and
cut into circles about 2 1/2 inches across.  Place on a cold tray and
put in a hot (450F, 230C) oven for 10-15 minutes till golden brown.
Split and butter and add jam,jam and whipped cream, or jelly or honey, 
golden syrup, or Vegemite (yay) or just have with the butter alone.
