Cheese Scones

cheese scones

Who doesn’t love scones?  We’re absolutely enamored with them.  While most scones tend to be on the sweet side, we’ve opted for a savory scone to go with your tea this week.  Cheese?  Yes, please!

Ingredients

  • 8oz self raising flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 2oz butter, cold
  • 1oz Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • 5fl oz milk

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 425F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

  2. Mix together the flour and salt and rub in the butter.

  3. Stir in the cheese and then the milk to get a soft dough.

  4. Turn onto a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Pat out to a round 2cm/¾in thick. Use a 5cm/2in cutter to stamp out rounds and place on the baking sheet. Lightly knead together the rest of the dough and stamp out more scones to use it all up.

  5. Brush the tops of the scones with a little milk. Bake for 12–15 minutes until well risen and golden. Cool on a wire rack.
