Best Ever Cheese Scones

These Cheese Scones are crunchy on the outside, incredibly soft and fluffy on the inside and filled with savoury cheddar cheese.

– Flour – Baking Powder – Salt – Cayenne Pepper – Butter – Cheddar Cheese – Milk


In a large mixing bowl add the dry ingredients, the flour, baking powder, salt and cayenne pepper. Use a wooden spoon to mix the ingredients together.


Cut your cold butter into small cubes. Add it to the dry ingredients and use your finger tips to work the butter into the flour. Alternately you can use a pastry cutter or a dough cutter.


When the butter has been combined well add your cheese to the mixture and mix it through with a wooden spoon. This is also the time to add any additional ingredients to the scones.


Pour in the milk and fold the scone dough together gently with a wooden spoon until it just starts to come together. Do not over mix!


Tip the scone dough out onto your work surface and fold it over itself a few times, incorporating any of the dry bits. We don’t want to knead it as that will make the scones tough.


Roughly shape the dough into a rectangle, about 20cm or 8″ long and 10cm or 4″ wide. It doesn’t need to be exact.
