Cheesed Up Scones
It is easy and so delicious. I gurantee you will eat more than one.
If you are not too keen on raisins, try my own version, which is Dave's recipe adding cheese instead of raisins.
Here are the ingredients:
- 3 cups of Flour
- 5 Tsp of Baking Powder
- 1 cup of Sugar
- ¾ cup of cold Butter
- 150 grams of yellow "Aged" cheddar, cubed.
- 3/4 cup of Butter Milk
- 2 large Egg (separated)
|Cubed Cheese For Scones|
|Roll up Dough|
|Cut The Dough|
|Brush egg yolk on top of soon to be scones.|
Beat the egg whites till firm and fold into butter milk.
Add the butter milk mixture to the dry ingredients.
You may have to add a little extra liquid to take up all the flour. The mix will be sticky.
Scoop on to a large floured area (counter works fine).
Work the mix and then roll into a 2-3 inch roll, cut in 1½ inch pieces and place on large baking sheet.
Beat the egg yolks and brush top of each scone.
Bake for 20 minutes and watch them closely. Call in the troops, they'll be gone in no time.
Kiss the cook,
