Cheese scones

A simple recipe for cheese scones and who doesn’t like cheese scones!

Ingredients:

  • 250g Self raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 60g butter
  • 100g cheese (grated) + a little extra for topping
  • 80ml milk + a little extra for topping

Method:

In a bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking powder.

Cut the butter into cubes and rub it into the flour, to make breadcrumbs.

Add the cheese and mix well, trying not to overwork it, as the heat from your hands will start to melt the cheese.

Add the milk, a little at a time, until the mix comes together to form a dough. You may not need all of the milk.

Tip out onto a work surface and roll out to approx 2 cm thick. Cut the scones with a medium sized pastry cutter.

Place onto a lightly floured baking tray and brush the tops with a little milk. Finally add a small amount of grated cheese.

Cook in the centre of a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 10 – 15 minutes until golden on top and cooked through.
