Cheese Scones

Guest blog from my Mum today....

I cooked these for my Son, he was suitably impressed and thought them worthy of a place on his blog.

450g Self Raising Flour
150g Butter
2 Eggs
4 Tablspoons Milk plus extra for brushing over.
1/2 Teaspoon Mustard Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
approx 100g of strong flavoured Cheese - grated

Preheat oven to 200c

Rub butter into flour until like fine breadcrumbs. Add a pinch of salt & pepper, and mustard & cayenne pepper. Then add cheese & mix.

Beat eggs with milk & add to flour mixture until a soft dough is formed. Turn onto floured surface and knead lightly until smooth. Roll or pat until approx 2.5cm thick and cut with 8cm cutter, brush with milk and sprinkle with cheese.

Place on baking tray a few cm apart, brush with milk and bake for approx 15 mins or until golden and risen.

A sprinkle of mixed herbs is also a nice addition if liked, added at the dry stage.

Makes 10-12
