Cheese Scones

I got the idea of making these cheese scones from Tastes Like Home. They looked very yummy and first thing i did was i went and got cheese. This recipe worked out great for me and i loved it. Do give a try..

225 gms All Purpose Flour
3 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Salt
50 gms Unsalted Butter
125 gms Cheddar Cheese, Grated
1 tsp Sugar
1/4 tsp chilli powder
pinch of Mustard powder
1/2 cup Spring Onions, Chopped
2 tsp Chives, Chopped (optional)
100 ml Milk
Pepper powder, to sprinkle

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.

Add in the Butter to the flour mixture and mix well with your hands to form a crumbly texture.

Now add the cheese, mustard powder, sugar, spring onions, chives. Add milk and knead well to form a soft dough.

Now shape the dough into a circular shape with about 2 1/2 cm in thickness using your hands.

Cut the cirle as shown in the figure into 8 pieces using a knife.

Place the pieces on a baking tray lined with a baking paper. And brush some milk on top of all the pieces. Sprinkle some pepper powder on top of that.

Now place the tray in the center of the oven and bake at 220 deg C for about 15 - 20 minutes.

Lovely and yummy scones are ready to eat.. Enjoy!!

I know I would absolutely love these. I would probably eat them all right out of the oven, feel guilty, and have to make a second batch to share. lol, this is a dangerous recipe to have bookmarked...I can see it already...
