Cheese Scones

Providing you use plenty of well-flavoured cheese, I think you'll be impressed with the result.


450g strong white flour
5 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
100g butter, diced and cold
300ml full fat milk
150g grated cheddar
Few sprigs of thyme
1 egg
1 egg yolk for egg wash


Preheat the Oven to 220 degrees C
For the scones, mix the flour and baking powder.
Add the butter and using your fingertips rub in until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Add the milk, egg, cheese and thyme and mix until you have a smooth dough.
Roll out on a lightly floured surface until 2 cm thick.
Cut out using a 7cm cutter, re-roll, you will get 12 scones.
Egg wash.
