- Cheese Scones

This is a tasty variation on the standard scones which are served at tea time.

Ingredients:
6oz (180g or 1 US cups) self raising flour
1oz (30g or stick) butter
1 large egg
2 or 2 tbsp milk
4oz (125g or one stick) grated cheese (use whatever strength you prefer)
tsp salt
tsp mustard powder
Cayenne pepper to taste

Method:
Mix the flour, salt and pepper together. Rub in the butter and then mix in the cheese. Beat the egg and add in the milk; add mixture to the dry ingredients to make a soft, elastic dough. Roll out the mixture on a floured surface but not too thinly. Cut into round shapes and place on a well greased tray. Brush the top with milk and sprinkle a little extra cheese and pepper on top.
Bake in a pre-heated oven on a high shelf at 220C/425F/Gas Mark 7 until golden brown. Serve warm with butter.
