CHEDDAR SCONES


CHEDDAR SCONES

Makes 12-15

Ingredients:

200g self-raising flour, plus a little extra for dusting

50g butter, at room temperature

25g oats

75g grated cheddar cheese, plus extra for topping

150ml milk

Method:

Heat your oven to 220C. Pace the flour in a large bowl, then rub in the butter. Stir in the oats and cheese, then the milk – if it feels like it might be dry, add a touch more milk, then bring together to make a soft dough.

Lightly dust the surface with a little flour, roll out the dough no thinner than 2cm. Cut out rounds with a cookie cutter.

Transfer to a baking sheet, dust with a little more flour or grated cheese, then bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden. Cool, serve on their own or topped with mashed avocado or soft cheese.
