Cheese Scones

These are the cheesy scones used in the recipe below. Recipe is from recipes+ magazine.

Cast of characters

  • 2 shortcut bacon rashers, rind removed, finely chopped
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 25g butter
  • 1/4 cup finely grated parmesan
  • 1/2 cup milk (aproximately)
Step 1
Heat a small frying pan over high heat. Add bacon; cook, stirring for 5 minutes or until the bacon is crisp.. Remove from pan. Set aside to cool slightly.

Step 2
Sift flour into a bowl. Using fingertips, rub in butter until it resembles fine crumbs.. Stir in parmesan and bacon.

Step 3
Add enough milk to make a soft sticky dough.

Turn  dough onto a floured surface.

Knead until smooth. Press dough out until 2cm thick. Using a 3.5cm pastry cutter, cut 16 scones from the dough. I used an egg cup of aproximately the right size.

Tip - a soft sticky dough will produce light scones.
