2 Free Range Eggs

200 ml fresk milk

20 grams Flaked Almonds

  1. Place the flour, caster sugar and margarine into a mixer and mix until a breadcrumb like texture is formed.
  2. Add the eggs, milk and almond essence.
  3. Remove once the dough has been formed.
  4. On a floured bench roll out the dough to a thickness of around 3cms, and cut out with a 5cm pastry ring.
  5. Once cut out, in the centre of the scones lace your thumb into the centre to create a well.
  6. Spoon in a little of the cherry pie filling. 
  7. Bake at 155 degrees celsius for 20 minutes.
  8. Allow the scones to cool, while cooling mix the icing sugar and a little warm water together to make a glaze.
  9. Once the scones have cooled dip the top of the scone into the icing glaze, place half a glace cherry in the centre (covering the pie filling) and sprinkle a few flaked almonds over the top.

Best served with our National Trust sour cherry curd!
