1.  Combine milk and vinegar to make soured milk and set aside for 5 minutes.

2.  Sift flour and baking powder in a large bowl. Add in sugar and salt.

3.  Cut the cold butter in cubes and rub in with the dry ingredients using your finger tips until the mixture resembles course breadcrumbs. Tip: You may use your food processor for this. Try to work quickly, few bigger lumps of butter are better than overmixing!

4.  Add in the soured milk, egg and vanilla to this. Combine all the ingredients with an electric mixer (dough-hooks on) just enough to form a dough.

5.  Also add in the cranberries and transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface.

6.  Cut the dough in half. Stack the two halves on each other and press down with your hands.Again cut the dough in half and stack the two parts on each other. Pat down and repeat the procedure one more time. This will make your scones rise higher while baking.

7.  Roll out the dough into a rectangle (about 2,5 cm thick and 6 cm in width).

8.  Cut into small triangles. Sprinkle with granulated sugar. Brush with beaten egg yolk and bake in a preheated oven at 200 C for 15 minutes until golden and slightly crispy on top.

9.  Remove from oven and serve immediately with clotted cream, whipped cream, lemon curd, fruit jam of your choice, chocolate syrup OR JUST PLAIN !!!!!

Cooks' note:
In case cranberries are not available, you may like to substitute these with chocolate chips, raisins, fresh blueberries etc.
