Sluttishly Savoury: Cheese Scones

Ok. So scones are technically baking. I get it. But these are savoury and splendid and I had to photograph them quick smart before my family gobbled them up! So, here they are for your pleasure. And, believe me, they are rather pleasurable, if I do say so myself!

You'll need:
  • 225g plain flour
  • 55g soft butter
  • 25g grated mature cheddar
  • pinch salt
  • 150ml milk
  • 2 tablespoons of baking powder
  • salt and pepper
  • big pinch of mixed herbs
Make it!
  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C. You can daydream about that sexy guy you see on the way to work as you do this, if you like.
  • Sift the salt, baking powder and flour into a bowl. Add the salt, pepper and mixed herbs.
  • Blend in the butter with your fingertips.
  • Add the milk and cheese and blend until you have a soft dough.
  • Lightly flour a flat surface and roll out the dough until it's about half an inch thick.
  • Cut out your scones and place onto a baking tray covered in baking parchment. Brush with a little milk and sprinkle some cheese over the top.
  • Cook for 20 minutes, or until risen and golden brown on top (these scones won't rise as much as regular scones because of the cheese, but they should rise a fair bit).
