How To Make Cheese Scones In Half Hour or Less
With Autumn on its way, I love to make warm melt in your mouth recipes to keep out the cold weather. Not being much of a cook I don't have the patience to sit around for hours while waiting for the food to eventually cook. And even worse preparing meals for just two people.
Now a dinner party is another thing! Living in England I try to make traditional snacks and meals, Cheese scones being one of them. I love anything to do with cheese, and my favorites are cheese scones.
These delicious scones make a great tea time treat. For best results serve fresh from the oven but leave at least ten minutes for them to cool. Slightly warm is the best temperature for the Cheese scones but they can be eaten cold too.
I always make these in the Autumn or winter. Sometimes I cheat and buy them fresh from the bakery across the road. But I do prefer my own, because you can add as much cheese as you like.

Instructions for Cheese Scones
- Preheat the oven to 230C/450F or gas mark 8. Sift the flour, baking powder, mustard powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Add the butter and rub it into the flour mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in 50g / or 2 oz of the cheese.
- Make a well in the centre and add the milk and egg. Mix it all up gently and then turn the dough out on to a lightle floured surface. Roll it out and cut it into triangles or squares, your choice. Then brush lightly with milk and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Leave it to rest for at least fifteen minutes, then bake them for 15 minutes. All depending on your style of oven. If in doubt just make sure that the cheese scones are well risen. Prick with a fork or knife to make sure that the scones are cooked.
