I come running to put this entry. I had completely forgotten that today was the day of publication of the sweet proposal, but I could arrive on time.
The scones I had never prepared, I always thought about making them but the day never came. Thanks to Whole kitchen I am making recipes that I wanted to taste.
These muffins are very good to drink with a tea and are traditional in the county of Devon (England).
It is best to eat them fresh from the oven.

I wish you all a good weekend!

Scones of Devon

350 gr. of flour of force
40 gr. of sugar
50 gr. of chopped butter
180 gr. of milk
1 beaten egg to paint
Marmalade to taste

We put to heat the furnace to 210º.
We lined a baking tray with vegetal paper.
We sieved the flour in a a large bowl and add the sugar, add the chopped butter and mix with the hands until it has a crumbly consistency.
Pour the milk and mix well until we have a thin and somewhat sticky dough. on a floured surface and lightly kneaded.
Flatten with roller, measure about 2 cm. thick.
With a clipper cut circles of 6 cm. of diameter and we are placing them in the tray.
We paint with the beaten egg and put it in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
We serve hot accompanied by jam and whipped cream. I have accompanied them with marmalade pumpkin and ginger.
