A Delicious Destination

Okay, so we may not have done all the hard work at harvest time… but the Handmade Shopgirls have partaken in the fruits of that labour [pun fully intended] and therefore can definitely recommend plenty of ways to enjoy the drool-worthy delights of our local independent producers and growers – and we can confidently confirm that handmade tastes better! True. Story.

One of our Winter favourites is Montrose Berry Farm Raspberry Jam on some classic scones, accompanied by an Organics for Lily cup of tea. Bon appétit!

BASIC SCONES

3 cups (450g) self-raising (self-rising) flour, sifted

½ cup (110g) caster (superfine) sugar

75g cold butter, chopped*

1 cup (250ml) milk, plus extra, for brushing

raspberry jam, to serve

chantilly cream

¾ cup (180ml) pouring (single) cream

¼ cup (40g) icing (confectioner’s) sugar, sifted

Preheat oven to 180ºC (355ºF). Place the flour and sugar in a bowl and mix to combine.

Add the butter and use your fingertips to rub it into the flour mixture until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk.

Use a butter knife to gradually mix the milk into the flour mixture until just combined.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and gently bring the dough together.

Roll out to 2cm thick and use a 6cm-round cutter to cut 12 rounds.

Place the scones on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper and brush with extra milk.

Bake for 18–20 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.

To make the Chantilly cream, place the cream and icing sugar in a bowl and whisk until soft peaks form.

Serve scones with cream and raspberry jam. Makes 12.

* Use cold butter to ensure a flaky texture to your scones.

** By using a butter knife to mix the dough, you avoid overworking the gluten in the flour.

Use light hands to bring the dough together or you’ll end up with hard, tough scones.
