Cheese and Herb Scones

 

  • 8oz Self-Raising Flour
  • 2oz Butter Pinch of Salt
  • 3oz of strong grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard Powder
  • Large pinch Dried Herbs
  • Milk

Sieve flour, mustard powder, and salt and rub in butter till fine breadcrumbs.
Mix in herbs and cheese.
Add enough milk to draw it all together.
Place on a greased tray and bake in moderately hot over (about 220f) for 12 mins.

Three tips:

  • cut the butter into small cubes and freeze it for 10 mins before rubbing in.
  • use a knife to mix the milk into the dry ingredients.
  • shape out into a large round and cut into wedges rather than using a cutter and overworking the off cuts.
