Steps

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and egg. Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. 4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead it a few times. Pat the dough into a circle about 1-inch thick. 5. Using a round cookie cutter or glass, cut out scones from the dough and place them on the prepared baking sheet. 6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the scones are golden brown. 7. Serve warm with jam and clotted cream if desired.
