There's this British historian and TV presenter Ruth Goodman who's done a whole bunch of docos about life on farms during various periods in history. She did one series called "Edwardian Farm" and during it they made a thing called "cut rounds", basically like a savory scone. I found a recipe and made them, and while mine didn't rise much, they're REALLY yummy!

The recipe I followed was this one: raspberryandchipotle.blogspot.

I'm not remotely a person who knows about baking so I don't know why they didn't rise (needs more baking powder maybe?), but they WERE nice and moist inside and not like hockey pucks!

@fox Cheers! :D They're very tasty, can definitely recommend. 👍🏻

@virtualwolf You can very easily overmix scones, being as hands off as possible will help. Freezing and grating the butter, then barely using your fingers to bring it all together and not kneading or pushing hard

@virtualwolf The classic Women's Weekly recipe uses lemonade for liquid, where the bubbles help keep things light
