As I had successfully made marmalade, I was obliged to make scones to accompany it.
(biscuits to Americans I believe http://alldownunder.com/australian-convert/food-chart.htm)
1. Rub 30g butter into 2 1/2 cups SR flour, 1 tbs castor sugar, 1.4 tsp salt
I ran out of SR flour so mixed 2 tsp baking powder into plain flour, which did the trick.
2. pour in milk bit by bit (about 3/4 cup in total) until you have a dough consistency, not sticky, not crumbly.
To avoid scones becoming rocks, mix milk in with a knife. For years I never followed this tip, but trust me, it makes such a difference to the consistency post-oven.
3. When dough just combined, roll out 2cm thick and cut with round cutter. They can be put pretty close together on tray as they rise up not out. Bake for 15 minutes in moderate oven
