Method
Step 1
Preheat oven to 200°C (fan bake). Grease the sides and line the base of a 23cm loose bottom cake tin with baking paper.
Step 2
Cut thin strips from the pastry sheet for the crosses. Set aside.
Step 3
Sift self-raising flour, Gregg's Ground cinnamon and Gregg's Ground Mixed Spice into a mixing bowl. Stir in raisins. Make a well in the centre and pour in cream and Lemonade and mix to form a soft dough.
Step 4
Turn onto a floured work surface and gently knead the dough into a smooth ball. Roll or pat the dough out to a thickness of 3cm. Cut into 12 rounds using a 6cm diameter cookie cutter, dipping it in flour to avoid the dough sticking to the cutter. Place 9 scones in a circle and then fill in the centre with the remaining 3 scones.
Step 5
Place a pastry cross on each scone, cutting the pastry to fit. Brush the tops with cinnamon sugar glaze. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden and cooked. (Check the centre scones with a skewer ensuring it comes out clean). Leave in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Serve warm with butter.
Step 6
cinnamon Sugar Glaze: Whisk Gregg's Ground cinnamon, brown sugar and milk together.
Tips
If you don't have a 6cm diameter cookie cutter use a glass of a similar size diameter, making sure it is well dusted with flour.
The tin should hold 12 scones.
If you don't have a tin, you can place individual scones on a tray, ensuring to keep them close together to avoid spreading. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
If you have any dough left over these can be made into individual scones and baked on a tray for 15-20 minutes.
Replace raisins with sultas if wished.
If you don't like raisins or sultas add ½ cup of chocolate chips in place of the fruit.
Instead of butter, you can serve with your favourite jam.
