Cheese Scones – Makes about 6 scones using a 6-7cm diameter circle cutter

Ingredients:

  • 225g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 50g cold butter or Lurpak
  • 125g strong hard cheese such as Cheddar, Red Leicester or Parmesan (or a combination)
  • 60ml cold milk
  • 60ml cold water
  • Some milk or an egg to milk or egg wash the scones

Method:

  1. Heat the oven to 220C. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl, then add the salt and combine.
  2. With cold hands, break the butter up into small pieces and rub into the flour with your fingertips until it looks a bit like wet sand!
  3. Grate the cheese and add ¾ of it to the flour and stir into the mix.
  4. Create a well in the centre of the flour and cheese mix and add the milk and water. Gently mix with a spoon or your hands, but be careful not to overwork the dough. The dough is ready when everything is combined and it comes away from the bowl.
  5. Lightly flour your work surface and gently flatten or roll the dough so that it is no less than 2 cm wide. Cut the dough with a circle cutter (between 6-7cm diameter).
  6. Place the scones on a baking tray and brush with the milk or egg wash.
  7. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on each scone and bake for 12 – 15 minutes until golden. Leave to cool slightly and enjoy!

Coxy’s Kitchen Tip:
For extra flavour try adding a teaspoon of mustard powder, chilli flakes or a tablespoon of chopped chives.
