Cheese and Chives Scones



  • 1 Pre-heat oven to 200 Degree Celcious
  • 2 In a bowl, whisk together SR Flour, baking powder, salt and pepper
  • 3 Mix in cheese and chives.
  • 4 In a measuring jug, mix together cream and warm water.
  • 5 Make a well in the centre of the flour mix, and pour in the cream mixture. With a flat blade (e.g. butter knife) gently cut cream into flour, working the mix together. Be careful not to overwork dough. The mixture should be just combined.
  • 6 Turn dough onto floured surface and pat into a round approximately 3cm thickness. With a floured scone cutter, cut into 12 rounds, and place, close together on a lined tray (placing them together allows them to support each other as they rise).
  • 7 Lightly brush tops of scones with some additional milk.
  • 8 Bake at 200oC for approximately 18-20 minutes until cooked (scones should be golden brown and sound hollow when tapped). Serve warm with butter.
