Sometimes you just do not have any bread for Tea time .
And especially after a holiday and if your mom is in the house was really necessary to make something and I thought in scones and find a new recipe :
I like to try new recipes.
My mom love scones because my grand mom made almost all the time when she was a child.
The dad of my mom was an english and lovely man, who came from Southampton, England.
About scones history
"Scones became popular and an essential part of the fashionable ritual of taking tea in England when Anna, the Duchess of Bedford (1788 – 1861), one late afternoon, ordered the servants to bring tea and some sweet breads, which included scones. She was so delighted by this, that she ordered it every afternoon and what now has become an English tradition is the “Afternoon Tea Time” (precisely at 4:00 p.m.). They are still served daily with the traditional clotted cream topping in Britain."

350 self-raisingflour, plus more for dusting
1/4 tsp salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
90 g cold butter cut into cubes
1 teaspoon caster sugar
150 natural full fat yogurt
4 tablespoon milk
1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp milk to glaze
Put a baking sheet in the oven at 190°C (350° F).
Put the flour, salt and baking powder into a food processor (or by hand) then whizz in the butter until it disappears.
Add the sugar, tip into a large bowl and then make a well in the middle.
Warm the yogurt and milk together in the microwave for 1 minute or in a pan, it should be hot and may well go a bit lumpy looking. Tip into the bowl and quickly work into the flour mix using a cutlery knife.
As soon as it's all in, stop.
Tip the dough onto a floured surface, then with floured hands, fold the dough over a few times- just enough to create a smoothish dough. Press out to about 4 cm and dip with a 7 cm cutter into more flour, then stamp out the rounds, flouring the cutter each time. Squash the remainder lightly together, then repeat until the dough is used up.
Brush tops with egg wash, scatter flour over the hot sheet, then lift the scones on.
Bake for 15 minutes until risen and golden. Best eaten just warm or on the day.
