    Makes: 8 scones

    • 225g (8 oz) plain flour
    • 3 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 55g (2 oz) butter

    1. Preheat the oven to 220 C / Gas 7.
    2. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together. Rub in the butter until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Mix in the grated cheese, reserving a little for the top, and bind together with milk to make a soft dough.
    3. Gently roll out onto a floured surface and shape into a round. Place on a baking tin and cut into 8 triangles. Brush with milk or egg and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
    4. Bake near the top of the preheated oven until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

    made this today. Lovely light scones. A bit more dense due to cheese used in them but so very lush and tasty. Lovely to take to work for elevenses!  -  01 Nov 2015
