Pastry/Scone Cutters

My pastry cutters are fine for mince pies etc but hopeless when trying to cut out scones.
To date I have never found scone cutters that are about 3" to 4" deep which is what is needed to make nice deep scones.

I live in the UK so am limited to what is available here.
Does anyone know if specialised cutters are made for scones?

csalt, you might try using an empty can the diameter you desire to cut your scones.

I use empty water chestnut cans with both lids removed to make English muffins. They are the perfect diameter.

I use custard cups, aka ramekins, which is the perfect size for my scones.

The King Arthur Flour Catalog has specailty baking pans for making scones.

Now, if King Arthur flour can't or won't ship to the UK, well, there is something very ironic there!

I'm sure they would Caine but I think I'll have to imrovise as I cannot really afford to have them shipped from USA.

Thanks all of you.

I just follow the 5 star scones recipe posted in Allrepices.com and cut into pie sized wedges like they suggest before baking (eight pieces but you can vary that if you wanted)-----best recipe that I've found ever for moist and great tasting scones!!

Katie and Expatgirl - both very good ideas. I've never used the water chestnut can idea but certainly will. I do the scones as Ex does.

I'll try both of those methods.
The round ones are just typically English! I like to make miniature ones so that we can keep the calories down!!
