Cheese Scones Recipe

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
I love making cheese scones and after slightly tweaking a recipe I found in one of my Mum's old cookbooks, I decided to share the recipe with you. 

• 8oz Self-raising flour
• 185ml milk
• 4oz Mature Cheddar Cheese
• Pinch of Salt
• 1oz Butter

1. Preheat the oven to 210C.

2. In a large mixing bowl, mix your flour and crumble your butter with it using your fingertips until the mixed flour and butter look like breadcrumbs. Add a pinch of salt. 

3. Now make a well in the centre and add your milk, leave a small amount of milk for glazing the top of the scones later on.

4. Using a flat-bladed knife, mix the milk in with the flour and butter. 

5. Add your mature cheddar cheese. At the point the mixture should be extremely sticky but this is right. 

6. Now using some flour and a rolling pin, roll out your mixture. It's up to you how thick you want them to be but since we used self-raising flour they will naturally rise in the oven.
  *tip* I find that making them thinner tastes better personally.

7. Using a round cutter, cut your scones out and put them on a greased baking tray. 

8. Now that you have cut all of your scones, glaze the scones with the milk you left from earlier using a pastry brush. 

9. Now I like to add cheese to the tops of the scones. 
  *tip* I find that even though we put a lot of cheese in the scones, they lose their taste when baked. The more cheese they have on the top, the cheesier and better they tend to taste. 

10. Bake your scones for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Keep checking them.
  *tip* They tend to taste better browner. 

11. Now your scones are ready to eat!
