I have recently gone into a phase of increasing the protein content in all my meals; almond/eggs are my preferred choice.
Be warned! These almond scones are not only light and fluffy, but tasty.
1 tbs honey
1 tsp salt
Pre heat oven, 180 degrees
Lightly sprinkle baking tray with flour
Measure the quantity of ground almonds you want and add half the amount of self raising flour. With finger tips, rub in butter; then add flaked almonds, honey, salt, egg and milk, enough to make a soft (but not wet or stiff ) dough.
Pat dough on a floured surface and cut to desired thickness. Place on baking tray and brush with egg wash. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Take out and leave to cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!
