Makes 18 | Takes 15 mins to make, 15 minutes to cook 


  • Plain flour, to dust
  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 40g butter, chilled, coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup sultanas
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Milk, extra, to brush
  • Butter, extra at room temperature, to serve
  • Honey, to serve


Step 1
Preheat oven to 200°C. Dust a baking tray with plain flour. Sift the self-raising flour into a bowl. Use your fingertips to rub butter into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sultanas. Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk. Use a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix until evenly incorporated and the mixture begins to come together.

Step 2
Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll out dough until 1.5cm thick. Use a round 4.5cm-diameter pastry cutter to cut 18 scones from the dough. Place on the tray about 1cm apart. Brush with extra milk. Use a sharp knife to score the scones crossways. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden and scones sound hollow when tapped on top. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Step 3
Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Line 3 baking trays with baking paper. Roll dough between 2 sheets of baking paper until 5mm thick. Using a 6.5cm long, 7cm wide gingerbread man cutter, cut shapes from dough. Re-roll dough scraps and cut to make a total of 30 gingerbread men. Place 2cm apart, on prepared trays.

Step 4
Top with butter and honey to serve at your teddy bears picnic. Don’t forget to pack your Pixie and your favourite teddys.
