Seriously Strong Scottish Cheese Scones

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

SOURCE: www.IGOURMET.COM I have made these several times now and they are wonderful. Even though Mull of Kintyre is called for in preference, I prefer the Seriously Strong cheddar. Baking time is approx. watch until golden.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the flour, salt and pepper together.
  2. Massage in the butter and then slowly mix in the grated cheese.
  3. Beat the egg and add in the milk; add mixture to the dry ingredients to create a soft, elastic dough.
  4. Roll out the mixture on a lightly floured surface. Cut into round shapes and place on a well greased tray.
  5. Brush the top with milk and sprinkle a little extra cheese and pepper on top.
  6. Bake in a pre-heated oven in the center at 400 until golden brown.

I couldn't get the listed cheese, so I used regular sharp cheddar, which turned out pretty well. My boyfriend is a cheese addict and liked them even more than I did. :)
