This is an old South African recipe.
Heat oven to 380 degrees. Whisk together flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. Gradually mix dried fruit in if used. Add very soft butter to dry ingredients. Mix with finger tips until evenly blended (like a cornmeal texture). Whisk together eggs and milk, then gradually mix with fingers into flour mixture until dough forms like lumpy mashed potatoes. Do not overwork, but mixture should be dough overall.
Pat into high round ring. Use round edge of measuring cup as a cookie cutter and place scone on cookie sheet. (You can use ice cream scoop, sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, directly from dough to cookie sheet, which is less messy and easier).
Bake about 17 minutes. If you like, you can dab the tops of the scones with an egg wash or topping before baking.
Egg Wash: Beat together an egg and milk in a small bowl and lightly brush on top of scones. Or you can brush the tops with powdered sugar and lemon juice.
Makes: about 18 scones
Note: If served with afternoon tea and clotted cream or whipped cream, you can simply make plain scones.
