Pack into freezer bags and freeze for up to three months. Defrost then refresh in a hot oven serving before serving.

Method

  1. Add milk to egg to make 150ml (¼ pint). Reserve about 1-2 tbsp mixture for the glaze. Tip all the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor and whizz in bursts until the ingredients bind together. Take care not to over-mix it or the cherries will be too finely chopped. Alternatively, tip the flour and baking powder into a bowl, and rub in the butter. Roughly chop the cherries and add them with the other ingredients, mixing with a round-bladed knife until a dough is formed.
  2. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to about 2cm (¾in) thick and use cutter to stamp out scones. Re-roll trimmings and cut out more scones until dough is used up. Place them on the baking sheet.
  3. Brush the glaze over the top of the scones, then bake them in the centre of the oven at 220°C (230°F, gas mark 7) for about 15-18 mins, or until they have risen and are a light golden colour.
  4. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm or cold with butter.
