Scottish Recipes - Treacle Scones

This is a recipe for a popular "tea-time" treat.

8 oz self-raising flour (all-purpose flour with baking powder in USA)
2 oz butter
1 oz caster sugar (fine granulated sugar)
2 tablespoons black treacle (molasses)
Pinch of salt
Half a teaspoon of cinnamon
Approximately quarter pint of milk

Sift the flour and salt into a bowl and rub in the butter. Mix in the sugar, cinnamon, treacle and enough milk to the flour mixture to make a soft dough. Knead this on a floured surface until it is both moist and elastic.

Cut the mixture into rounds with a 2 inch pastry cutter. Grease a baking sheet (cookie sheet) and place the rounds on this. Brush with a little milk (to glaze) and bake for 12/15 minutes in an oven, pre-heated to 425F/220C/Gas Mark 7 until golden brown(the mixture will be quite dark even before cooking).

Allow to cool on a wire rack and serve split in half with butter.
