I recently purchased Paul Hollywood's How to Bake Cookbook and since I am a lover of Scones I decided I would give his recipe a try. Gradually add milk mixture to dry ingredients, tossing until moist clumps form and adding more milk by tablespoonfuls if dough is dry. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Grate the frozen butter and add to dry mixture.
