Scones with Nutella®
Sift the flour together with the baking powder and then pour all of that mixture into a pile on the pastry board. Add a pinch of salt and the softened butter chopped into pieces. Stir it quickly, then gradually add the milk and continue stirring until you have a homogenous, quite soft dough.
Roll it out with the rolling pin to a thickness of approximately 2 cm and cut it into several discs 4cm in diameter with a round pastry cutter. Put the cut-offs back together and roll the dough out again and cut more discs out until the dough is all used. Put the scones onto a baking tray covered with lightly greased baking paper and brush them with milk, then finally cook them in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for approximately 15 minutes.
Let them cool, then split in half and spread Nutella® before serving.
