Well, thanks to my lovely friend & magnificent cook Suzanne we now make fabulous cheese scones in our house.
Here is our slightly adapted recipe:
Pre heat oven to 220 degrees celsius
2 cups organic spelt or wheat flour
2 tsps baking powder
Sift flour & baking powder together, then add:
1 1/2 cups grated vintage cheese
1/2 c grated butter
2 tsps sugar
1/2 tsp salt
pinch of cayenne pepper
3/4 c slightly warmed full cream milk
Mix all the dry ingredients together then make a well in the centre- pour in the milk & work the whole lot together.
Knead a little in the bowl- to save mess, until you have a really nice smooth, cogent texture.
Tip out on to a very lightly floured baking paper lined baking sheet.
Cut in to 8 or so pieces & separate.
Sprinkle over extra cheese.
Bake for 10- 15 minutes until crisply golden brown.
Serve with loads of butter.
Original recipe came from The Ministry of Food Cafe in Wellington- you may prefer to make their version:
