These are wonderful savoury scones, which I got from 99 cents traditional british cooking cookbook. What a great invest I have to say! ;) These are very easy to make and in my opinion have a great flavour, too. Let me know what you think!

Wow, Loula, these were awesome. Quick, easy to make with terrific results. So much flavor, loved the butter, sesame, old cheddar topping. It took the scones somewhere really special. They were great, light, tender and fluffy. I have allergies to grains, so I used white flour, which worked well in this dish. I made half the recipe as posted and the other half, I didn't add the topping to and used in recipe #385419 for a terrific dinner. Thanks so much for sharing this lovely recipe which I will make again. Made for Fall Pac 2012
- 2 cups flour (I use half whole grain flour)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 30 g butter, cut into small pieces
- 180 ml milk
- 30 g butter, melted
- 1⁄2 cup cheese, grated (e.g. cheddar or gouda cheese)
- 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F.
- In a big bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt. Using your finger tips work in butter until dough resembles coarse crumbs.
- Make a well in the center and add milk. Using a knife stir quickly into a smooth dough.
- Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 2 or 3 turns before rolling out (you can also just pat it down a bit).
- Using a cookie cutter or glass to cut out scones (I use a 7.5 cm glass).
- Place on a paper-lined baking sheet.
- For glaze combine melted butter with cheese and sesame seeds and spread evenly over scones.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until nicely browned.
- Enjoy warm or cooled.
