I made these for Sunday brunch today. They were wonderful with slices of baked ham and scrambled eggs. Made just by the recipe for beautiful scones. Made for ZWT 8 :D

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Put a shelf high in the oven and pre-heat to 220C/425F/Gas Mark 7.
  2. Mix the flour, salt and pepper together. Rub in the butter and then mix in the cheese.
  3. Beat the egg and add in the milk; add mixture to the dry ingredients to make a soft, elastic dough. Roll out the mixture on a floured surface but not too thinly. Cut into round shapes and place on a well greased tray. Brush the top with milk and sprinkle a little extra cheese and pepper on top.
  4. Bake until golden brown, about 12-15 minutes. Serve warm with butter.
