Today I made Cheese Scones. Very easy, economical and delicious.
200g Self raising flour
50g of Butter
100g of Grated Mature Cheddar Cheese
150ml of milk
1/2 teaspoon of Ground Cayenne Pepper
Rub the butter into the flour unil it resembles breadcrumbs. Mix in the cheese and cayenne (reserve some cheese for sprinkling on top of each scone). Add the Egg and the milk and mix to a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured board. I used the heel of my hand to squish the dough to 2cm thickness and cut out the scones. This quantity made ten small to medium scones. Sprinkle each scone with some of the cheese. I baked them in a medium hot oven for about 15-20 minutes.
I was looking for an excuse to use my new, cute oven gloves.
