Ingredients

  • 2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    teaspoon cream of tartar

  • ½

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1

    pinch salt

  • ¼

    cup margarine

  • cup white sugar

  • ½

    cup milk

  • 2

    tablespoons milk

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Sift the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt into a bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and enough milk to mix to a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface, knead lightly and roll out to a 3/4-inch thickness. Cut into 2-inch rounds and place on the prepared baking sheet. Brush with milk to glaze. Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 10 minutes then cool on a wire rack. Serve with butter or clotted cream and jam.
