    These cheese scones are so quick and easy. They call for only 5 ingredients: flour, salt, butter, cheese and milk. Smother them in butter and enjoy.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 225g self raising flour
    • pinch salt
    • 60g butter
    • 25g tasty cheese, grated
    • 150ml milk

    Directions
    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Heat the oven to 220 degrees C. Lightly grease a baking tray.
    2. Mix together the flour and salt then rub in the butter.
    3. Stir in the cheese then the milk to get a soft dough.
    4. Turn on to a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Pat out to an oval 2cm thick. Cut into 6 - 8 pieces depending on how large you like your scones then place on the baking sheet. If you prefer you can also use a cutter to stamp out rounds.
    5. Brush the tops of the scones with a little milk. Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden. Cool on a cooling rack.

    Excellent. I added some chilli powder, because I am that way inclined. But perfect without. - 18 Feb 2015
