These cheesy scones are so easy to make and only really need adult help with the oven and supervision with the cheese grater so are great for kids to make. Mine haven’t risen brilliantly but I think that is because I used plain flour with baking powder so instead I have swapped this recipe for self raising flour- they still tasted amazing though!
Ingredients (makes around 8-10)
225g self raising flour
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
Heat the oven to 210C and cover a baking tray with grease proof paper
Mix salt and pepper into the flour and rub in the butter- try and use cold hands and not rub it too much- it should sort of look like breadcrumbs
Mix in nearly all of the cheese (leave a little for topping) and then slowly add the milk (again leave a few ml back)
Use your hands to pull it all together into a ball
Sprinkle flour on your worktop and rolling pin and roll out the ball until it is about 2cm thick. Stamp out circles using cutters.
Brush the scones with a little milk and then sprinkle with the leftover cheese
Bake for 12 -14 minutes and then leave to cool for a few minutes.
These scones are delicious eaten warm with butter.
