Cheese scones :)

Good morning, fancy a cheese scone today? Yeah, why not!

These little beauties are so easy to make and only take 20 minuets to cook.

I found this recipe in a Mary Berry cookbook – so I thought they have to be good if the queen of baking is making them! Here we go:

Start by pre-heating your oven and greasing a baking tray. Once again I am using a Silverwood baking tray because these are just AMAZING! You are supposed to put mustard powder and cayenne pepper into the mixture, but I didn’t have these so I didn’t put them in. And yes they still came out tasting like cheesey doughy round balls! I will put the recipe at the bottom of the page so you lovely people can make these scones correctly – or not if you are like me and miss a few ingredients out! Haha!

Okay so mix your pepper, flour, mustard, salt and baking powder in a bowl:

Next add the butter and rub it in with your fingers until it looks like fine bread crumbs.

Make sure you prep the cheese by grating a lot first. And then add 120g of it into your mixture.

Grab a jug and break an egg into it, then fill to 150ml with the milk.

Next add the milk and egg mixture to the dry ingredients and mix into a soft but not sticky dough.

Once you have your dough, flour your worktop and kneed the dough lightly. This recipe is meant for one big dough ball which you tear once cooked, but I prefer to do smaller balls. So split it into 2.

And each half into 3.

Then once you have your round balls put them onto the pre-greased baking tray, splash them with milk to make them shiny then add the remainder cheese over the top.

Place into your oven for 15-20 minuets or until golden and firm to touch, and ta-dah! you have cheese scones!

They are really yummy warm, but they are still pretty yummy cold – but don’t let them sit around for too long. You want to be eating these in the first few days of baking to make sure they taste fresh!
