Cheese Scones

This recipe was so popular when we first published it, we’ve decided to remind people once more of the delights of the simple and inexpensive cheese scone.

1 & 1/2 cups self-raising flour
Cayenne pepper
60g butter
200g coarsely grated tasty cheese
1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 220°C. Place into a bowl 1.5 cups self-raising flour, a large pinch of salt and a good shake of cayenne pepper.
Stir with knife. Rub in 60g butter. Add 200g coarsely grated tasty cheese and mix well. Pour in enough milk (approximately 0.5 cup) and stir with knife until a slightly sticky dough is achieved. Use knife to cut off large lumps and place on greased tray. Bake to golden brown (about ten minutes). Serve immediately with butter and strong coffee, or a pot of Earl Grey tea.
