Mini Cheese Scones

4 July 2014

Ooooh I love a cheese scone, more than a traditional scone I think. I love cheese and these scones with a slather of butter and a cup of tea are Yum!  This is my go to recipe for cheese scones, you don't have to make them mini but I like bite size.  And it means you can have more without feeling like you are pigging out! Ha!

Cheese Scones
Makes approx 12 mini or 6-8 large

You will need:

1 medium egg
100g grated cheddar cheese
50g grated parmesan
25g butter/spread
4 tbsp milk
175g self raising flour
Mustard powder or wholegrain mustard to taste (up to half tsp)
Mixed herbs and grated cheese for the topping

And then...

♥ Heat oven to 200 degrees, grease and line a baking tray
♥ Combine flour, seasoning and then rub in the butter
♥ Add the grated cheeses and then mix to a soft dough with the egg and milk
♥ Roll out to a good thickness (at least 1/2 inch) and cut rounds using cutters or I use an egg cup
♥ Place on your baking tray and brush with egg & milk and top with some grated cheese and herbs
♥ Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
