Worldly Wednesday – cheesy, cheesy scones!
I used to make a similar recipe to this all the time when I was a kid. Now I add less cheese than I used to and some smoky paprika for an extra taste kick!
2 cups SR flour
1 tspn salt
50 gm butter, cubed
1/2 tspn of smoked paprika (or regular paprika)
3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
The How To
Preheat oven to 240°C and line a tray with baking paper. In a large mixing bowl, add flour and salt and mix to combine. Rub in cubed butter to the mix – this should be until it resembles a breadcrumb like consistency – I am too impatient and mine always ends up looking lumpier – it still works. Add in your paprika and cheese and mix around. Create a well in the centre of your flour mix and add in your milk and stir to form a soft dough. Tip out onto a lightly-floured bench and roll out until about 1.5 cm thick. Using a small glass or cookie cutter, cut out rounds of dough. Place onto your prepared tray and lightly brush with a little milk. Bake for 10 minutes or until a light golden colour on top.
