Cheese Scones

A scone is a rich, baked pastry that started off as a Scottish quick bread. It is a basic component of the British cream tea and is commonly eaten with clotted cream and jam.


Scones can be eaten for breakfast with a side of bacon and eggs, or just as it is, slathered with a layer of butter. They are absolutely heavenly goodness.

These scones are really easy to make. I have made scones with cheese but raisins, currants, dates can be added also.


Prep time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 30 minutes

Serves: 4


Ingredients:

2 cups flour

3 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp butter

30 g strong cheese (grated)

1/2 cup milk

1 egg (beaten)


Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 230ºC.

  2. Line a baking tray with some parchment paper or grease it with butter and dust some flour on it.

  3. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl.

  4. Add the butter to the dry ingredients and using your hands rub the butter into the flour to create a sand-like texture.

  5. Then, add the grated cheese and mix it all together.

  6. Next, make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the milk.

  7. Using a knife or a spatula stir the mixture so it all comes together.

  8. Then transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead into a softball.

  9. Roll out the dough to a thickness of 1 inch.

  10. Using a circle cookie cutter cut about 8-9 scones from the dough and arrange them on the baking tray.

  11. Glaze the scones with egg wash and bake for 20-25 minutes.

  12. Cut the scones in half and slather on some butter and enjoy!


Notes:

  • The second time I made them I chopped up some bacon and mixed it into the dough. It added an amazing flavor and tasted heavenly.

  • Instead of strong cheese, you can use 1 cube of good old Amul cheese.
