Step.7: On a rolling board or surface apply some flour and knead a couple of times and roll out to a 2 cm thick sheet.
Step.8: Cut the dough into scones of the shape you wish using a cutter or knife. Tip: for ease in cutting lightly flour the cutter.
Step.9: On a prepared baking tray place the cut dough with enough space to expand while cooking. Using a basting brush, apply beaten egg (egg wash) on the scones. Milk can also be used as an option instead of egg.
