Use your hands to shape the scone mixture until it's approximately 3cm thick and dip your cutter into a little flour and cut out the scones.
Bring excess dough back together and cut out more scones until all of the mixture has been used.
Place the scones into the baking tray so that they are almost touching and use a pastry brush to brush a little milk over the top of them.

If you mixture is too wet or dry, simply add a little extra self raising flour or milk
