Gorgeous warm and crumbly cheese scones, a savoury alternative to its jam and cream sweet counterpart. These are an easy quick alternative to making fresh bread and go down just as well. Serve with a delicious soup as a light lunch or as a snack. They are a good mid morning or afternoon snack which can be made quickly using store cupboard ingredients.
They are delicious served warm straight from the oven, with or without butter.
You can try different fillings for different occasions!
250g Self Raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
60g butter – cubed
100-120ml milk plus extra for glazing
50g Mature Cheddar – grated
50g Parmesan – grated
Extra grated Parmesan to sprinkle on before cooking
2 Spring Onions finely sliced
2/3 tablespoon either tomato chutney or mango chutney
100g Blue Cheese – such as Stilton or Roquefort
These can be adapted to suit your needs. For fussy eaters I tend to serve plain with just the cheese, for the slightly more adventurous you can add spring onions and either mango or tomato chutney and for a grown up taste blue cheese with or without the tomato chutney is perfect.
