  • STEP 1
    Pre-heat oven to 130C/450F/gas 8 and lightly grease two baking trays.
  • STEP 2
    Sieve the flour into a large bowl. Cut the butter into small chunks and add them to the flour.
  • STEP 3
    Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles bread crumbs. Add the sugar, milk, cherries and fudge.
  • STEP 4
    Use a blunt knife to mix the ingredients together into a soft dough. Press and mould it with your fingers to make it smooth.
  • STEP 5
    Sprinkle an area of work surface with flour and place the dough on it. Roll out until about 1cm thick.
  • STEP 6
    Cut shapes out of the dough. Squeeze the scraps together and roll out again.
  • STEP 7
    Repeat step 6 until all of the dough has been used.
  • STEP 8
    Put the scones onto the prepared baking trays, leaving plenty of room between each scone.
  • STEP 9
    Bake for 7-12 minutes or until golden brown and risen. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
  • STEP 10
    Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve on a plate with a few extra dried cherries.
