How to Make Plain old Fashion Tea-Scones

Don't be heavy handed , scones need a light touch . using a cutter or a floured glass (turned up side down) cut out 8 scones and put onto a prepared baking sheet. Brush each scone with the beaten egg + salt mix ,this will leave a shining glaze on top of baked scones.
    Place into a pre-headed oven for 12 - 15 minutes until well risen and golden. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool.
