Cheese Scones Recipe


500 ml cake flour
20 ml baking powder
5 ml salt
1 ml pepper or cayenne pepper
75 ml butter or margarine
1 or 2 eggs
About 190 ml milk
375 ml grated Cheddar cheese


  1. Pre-heat oven to 250 C. Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Sift together the dry ingredients.
  3. Rub in the grated butter with your fingertips or use a pastry cutter or food processor.
  4. Beat the egg(s) and blend with 125 ml ( ½ c ) milk; set aside 15 ml ( 1 T ) of this mixture to glaze the scones.
  5. Add the cheese and cut in the liquid with a spatula; do not knead the dough. Use sufficient milk to make a dough which is stiff enough to roll out.
  6. Place the dough on a floured surface and flatten gently with your hands or roll out to a thickness of 2 cm. Cut into rounds with a biscuit cutter or use a knife to cut into the desired shapes.
  7. Place on the greased baking sheet. Brush with the egg and milk mixture and bake for 10 minutes or until the scones are nicely browned on top.
