Cheese and Herb Scones



  1. Preheat the oven to 200°c/gas mark 6.
  2. Rub together the flour and butter/margarine (lightly between your fingertips) until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Mix in the cheese and herbs.
  4. Make a well in the centre and crack the egg in.
  5. Mix to combine, adding milk as you go to make a soft but not sticky dough.
  6. Press/roll out on a lightly floured surface to about 1 ¾cm/ ¾ inch in thickness.
  7. Using a 6½cm/ 2½ inch round cutter, cut out the scones and place on a lightly floured baking tray. If you don’t have a cutter, use a knife to cut out pieces.
  8. Bake for about 10 – 15 minutes until golden brown and when tapping on the bottom of each scone they sound hollow.
  9. Place on a cooling rack to cool slightly. Serve warm with butter and more cheese.
