Today i made some Cheese Scones, to most people that might not seem very much, i can cook pretty well and most of my food tastes great, but to make scones i seem to have a problem with them.

But today they worked out really well, its a pity i
didnt make more than i did, as with having a 21 year old male living with me, they all went within 5 mins, luckily i got some before he got to them lol

This is the Recipe i used for the Scones

Self Raising Flour. 250g,
Salt pinch
Dry Mustard ½ teaspoon
Cayenne pepper 1/8 teaspoon
Butter 30g,
Tasty Cheese, grated 125g,
Milk to mix 150ml.

Sift together the flour, salt, mustard, pepper, and the raising agent. Cut in the butter and rub to bread crumb consistency.

Add about 100g, of the grated cheese to the mixture, and blend in. Bind it all together with enough milk to form a soft dough.

Roll the dough out on floured board to 12mm, ½” thickness. Cut into about 15 rounds
Place on greased cooking sheet. Brush with milk and sprinkle with the rest of the cheese.
Bake in 200°C oven about 15 minutes. Cool the scones on a wire rack.
Serve with butter (if they're straight out of the oven they need nothing).
