Easy cheese scones

Difficulty: Easy

Time: 15 minutes + 10 minutes baking

Serves: 4 – 6

My kids are cheese fiends so these easy cheese scones make a great snack or lunch treat. With only a few ingredients they don’t take long to make and are delicious served straight from the oven.



Ingredients

225g self raising flour
1 pinch salt
55g butter
25g Cheddar cheese
150ml milk

Method

Pre heat the oven to 200C/190C Fan and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper

Mix the flour and butter together

Get your child to measure the flour into a bowl. Add a pinch of salt.

 

Weigh the butter, then cut it into small pieces before adding to the flour. Rub it together with your hands until it is well mixed and looks like fine breadcrumbs.

Grate your cheese and add to the flour, and again using your hands, mix it all in.

   

Add the milk

Measure the milk into a jug. Make a well in the middle of your flour mixture, then slowly add the milk until you have a soft but firm dough. Don’t add it all at once, as you might not need it all to get it to the right consistency – a not too sticky dough.

 

Make the cheese scones

Lightly sprinkle flour on to your work surface. Roll out or pat down the dough until it is about 2cm thick. Using a cutter (or a glass if you don’t have any) cut out your scones and pop them on the baking tray.

 

Bake the cheese scones

Brush the tops with a little milk then bake them in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

They’re best served warm with butter or more cheese.
