Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until it resembles crumbs. Mix in the milk. Form into a soft dough with a metal spatula. Knead lightly on a floured board, then pat out into a round 3/4 inch thick. Cut into 2-inch rounds with a cutter or a little cup. Place on a greased and floured baking sheet and brush with milk. Bake in preheated oven at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes until well risen and brown. Cool on a rack, but eat when still warm, with lots of butter, clotted cream, and jam. Yummo.
