How to Make:

  1. Make Roast Vegetable Scones; Preheat oven to 220C/200C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Sift flour, sugar and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Add butter. Using fingertips, rub butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add roast vegetables and chives. Stir to combine.
  2. Make a well in the centre. Add milk. Using a flat-bladed knife, stir until a sticky dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Gently knead until just smooth. Pat dough out to a 15cm round. Using a 5cm round cutter, cut out 4 rounds from mixture. Press dough trimmings together. Repeat to make 8 rounds. Place scones, just touching, on prepared tray. Brush tops with extra milk. Sprinkle with cheddar. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden and scones sound hollow when tapped.
  3. Meanwhile, place lemon juice and oil in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk with a fork to combine. Add salad leaves. Toss to coat.
  4. Arrange salad leaves, apple, cucumber, pecans, turkey, cheddar and scones on a serving board. Serve with cranberry sauce and butter.
