Cheese and Chive Scones

Crumbly Lancashire cheese is ideal in cooking. Combined with the onion flavour of freshly snipped chives, these scones are deliciously savoury. To increase flavour try spreading them with Welsh butter, which has a distinctive flavour.

ingredients

makes 10
225 g (8 oz) self-raising flour
pinch of salt
50 g (2 oz) butter, diced
100 g (4 oz) Lancashire cheese, grated
15 ml (1 tbsp) snipped fresh chives
150 ml (1/4 pint) fresh milk and extra for brushing

method

1. Put the flour and salt into a bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in 50 g (2 oz) of the cheese and the chives.

2. Add the milk and mix to form a soft dough, then knead quickly until smooth.

3. Roll out on a floured work surface until 1 cm (1/2 inch) thick. Cut into 10 rounds with a 5 cm
(2 inch) plain cutter and brush the tops with milk. Transfer to baking sheets.

4. Bake at 230°C (450°F) mark 8 for 7 - 10 minutes, until well risen and golden brown.

5. Immediately put the remaining cheese on top of the scones and allow to melt before serving hot or cold.

Great recipe. I used 1.5x the quantities stated here and added a few shakes of pepper and 1tsp of mustard powder. They were delicious.
