Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  Sift 1-3/4 cups self rising flour into a bowl.  Rub in 4 tablespoons chilled butter, cubed, with fingertips until mixture resembles fine bread crumbs.  Stir in 2-1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar.

Break one egg into a measuring cup, then fill the cup to the 2/3 cup level with milk.  Beat lightly and add to bowl.  Mix until a soft dough forms.  Then knead dough on a floured surface until smooth.  Roll until 1/2 inch thick, cut into rounds with a  2-inch pastry cutter and put on a lightly buttered baking sheet.  Brush each round with milk.

Bake for 10 minutes until risen and golden.  Serve with jam.  “I would choose strawberry,” says Mary Berry, “and a good clotted or whipped cream.”
