    Traditional English Scones for a Royal Wedding Viewing Party


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     BirdsParty is a graphic designer and party stylist from the UK, currently living in Toulouse, France. Her husband made these scones from a family recipe for a photo shoot for her Royal Wedding Viewing Party kit. 'For a savory version, add some grated cheese and chopped dried herbs to the scone mixture. Yum!'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    The Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton soon approaches (29th April)  and just like any high-profile televised  event, we are certainly going to be glued to our TV screens no matter  where we live, to watch the royal festivities -  So why not invite a few friends round for a fun Royal Wedding Viewing Party!

    Go for an english-style, afternoon tea party with traditional homemade scones filled with clotted cream and raspberry jam (jelly).



    * 225g (8oz) self-raising flour
    * pinch of salt
    * 1 Tsp baking powder
    * 40g butter or margarine (1 1/2 oz)
    * 150ml (1/4 pint) milk
    * beaten egg or milk to glaze
    * Raspberry jam and clotted cream to serve (can be substituted by whipping cream or yogurt)


    How to:


    1.  Sift flour, salt and baking powder together and rub butter until all resembles breadcrumbs
    2. Stir enough milk to bring it to a soft, light dough
    3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough to about 2cm (3/4 inch) thick and cut rounds (about 6cm)
    with a cookie cutter
    4. Place on a greased baking sheet and brush tops with beaten egg or milk
    5. Bake at 220 deg C (425 deg F) for about 10 minutes or until well risen and golden brown


    Serve warm, split and filled with the jam and clotted cream, accompanied by a selection of English tea blends served with milk or cream.
