Quick and Easy Cheese Scones

I was sitting here this morning, having a coffee break, and was wondering what to have for lunch, as am so bored of the usual things, and decided to make some cheese scones.

Anybody close to me knows I can not make scones, they usually come out as flat as I put them in the oven. I can make cakes, bread, biscuits and cookies etc, but never grasped scones.

So not one to give in, I decided to have a go.

The recipe is

Preheat the oven to 220C and lightly grease a baking tray, or line with a silicon tray liner

put the flour and salt in a bowl and mix in and then with your fingers rub in the butter until like breadcrumbs, add the grated cheese (I also added a bit of grated parmesan as I had some in the fridge) and then add the milk.  I would recommend adding a little at a time to form a soft dough

If it is too stiff add more milk, if too soft and sticky add more flour.

place on a floured work surface and flatten out until about 2cm thick and then use a cutter

Place onto baking tray, brush with some milk and place in the oven for about 12 mins or until golden brown.

Once cooked transfer to a cooling tray.

These are best served warm with loads of butter melting in.
