The raspberry cream is an alternative to the normal jam and cream.
Scones: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease a baking tray. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Rub in butter until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add milk and lemon zest to form a soft dough.
Roll out to about 1 1/4 inch thick and cut out scones. Brush with the beaten egg or extra milk and bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Remove to a cake rack and cool slightly. Serve warm with the raspberry cream.
Raspberry Cream: Mash the berries with a little icing sugar and swirl into the cream.
Note: A punnet would be about half a pound. (Berries come in little plastic punnets here. We have to buy them from the store, because it's too hot here to grow them).
