3 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cold butter -- cut into 1" cubes
1 1/2 cups dried mixed fruit -- chopped
6 ounces milk

Preheat the oven to 350 F. In a bowl, sift the flour and sugar, add the butter, then blend the mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Stir in the mixed fruit. Add the milk, a little at a time, and blend the mixture until it forms a soft but not sticky dough.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a round about 1 1/4" thick. With a 2" round cookie cutter, stamp out rounds. Transfer rounds to a buttered baking sheet, brush the tops with additional milk and bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden and bottoms sound hollow when tapped.

This makes about 11 scones.
