posted in: Recipe Mondays | 0


For the scones:
200g plain flour, plus extra for the baking sheet
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp caster sugar
1/2 tsp of salt
55g unsalted butter, cold, cut into cubes
150g cheddar cheese, grated
150ml whole milk
For the garlic butter:
45g unsalted butter
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp chopped fresh parsley

How to make Cheese Scones
To make the scones:
1) Position an oven rack in the upper third section of the oven and preheat the oven to 220°C/ gas mark 7. Lightly grease a large baking sheet and sprinkle with a little flour.

2) Pulse the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cream of tartar, sugar and salt in a food processor until well combined. Add the cubes of butter and pulse until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the cheese and milk and pulse 2 or 3 times.

3) Roll the dough out to a thickness of 3cm and cut into rounds using a pastry cutter. Place the rounds onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, until golden.

4) Meanwhile, make the garlic butter. Melt the butter with the garlic in a small saucepan over a medium heat. When the butter begins to foam, cook for one minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley. Once the scones are cooked, brush with garlic butter and serve warm.
