Blackcurrant Scones

I do love making Scones. They take very little time, and are what I call a stodgy bake—a belly filler! These triangle scones are quite substantial in comparison to the usual round types. What can I say, I’m a feeder! I have 4 strapping boys in the house, small portions rarely go down well here.

Roll the dough into a circle shape and cut like a pizza
