If you're new to baking savoury snacks, this one is perfect to begin with as it's all mixed in one bowl and then rolled out on a floured service where you can shape the dough into anything you want and little can go wrong in the process.
225g Plain Flour
2 1/2tsp Baking Powder
55g Butter Of Choice
115g Cheddar Cheese
80ml Milk Of Choice
Preheat the oven to 200degrees and line your baking tray with parchment paper.
Start by weighing out your flour, baking powder and butter. Put them into a mixing bowl together and work them together until they resemble breadcrumbs. Add salt and paprika to taste.
Add the milk slowly into the mixture. You want the dough to be easy to work with, but not too dry nor wet - it shouldn't feel too sticky.
Once you've got the texture of dough you want. Before rolling out, add your cheddar cheese and work until it's mixed it.
Flour your surface and roll out the dough until 2 inch thick. Use your cutter of choice and place the scones out your baking tray. Before putting in the oven, lightly brush the tops of your scones with milk - this just ensures that they go golden brown.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until they have colour on the top.
Leave the cool or have warm with melted butter - delicious!
