With afternoon tea week having just passed and of course a couple of posts about cakes and scones, it was about time I shared with you a recipe from my very own husband for Cheese Scones
He used extra mature cheddar and a dash of mustard and white pepper for a bit of a kick.
He proudly knocked these beauties up as a Sunday afternoon snack. They are delicious toasted with butter on! Yum!
It’s basic, simple recipes like this that we should all have in our arsenal to be brought out at will.
225g Self Raising Flour
55g Butter ( Room Temp)
50g Grated Extra Mature Cheddar
large pinch of salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp mustard powder
Flour for dusting
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees
In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper and mustard with the butter and rub together until you form crumbs
Add the grated cheese and milk and stir slowly until combined in to a dough
On a flour dusted surface, gently roll out the dough until it is 1″ thick and begin cutting out your scones. You can use a cutter or even a glass / cup for this
Lightly cover the top of each scone with milk to help it brown and place them on a baking tray
Cook for around 15 – 17 minutes or until golden brown, depending on your oven
Let them cool slightly on a wire rack and then serve with butter when they are luke warm
Once you make your own, it is very hard to go back to store bought cheese scones!
