Cheesy Sun-Dried Tomato Scones

Cheesy Sun-Dried Tomato Scones created by A Good Thing

These cheese scones are made with sun dried tomatos which is a beautiful combination. You can also swap the tomato for black olives for something different. When cooked properly, these scones are slightly crispy on the outside and lovely and fluffy in the middle. Open them up when still warm and put butter, soft cheese etc inside or have them plain as they are just as nice! These scones freeze very well & are great for packed lunches and picnics etc.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat the oven to 220c/gas7. Lightly grease 2 baking trays. Sift the flour, peppers, mustard, salt & baking powder together in a bowl. Add the mixed herbs.
  • Cut butter in to cubes and rub in until it forms 'breadcrumbs'. Add the cheese and tomatoes and mix well.
  • Beat the eggs in a measuring jug and add enough milk to make the quantity up to 275ml. Put 2 tbsp of milk/egg mix to one side and add the remainder to the flour mixture. Mix well to create a soft pliable dough. Add a little flour if it comes too sticky.
  • Roll out onto a floured surface to approximately 1'' thick. Cut into 6cm rounds and place on the trays. Continue in this way until dough is finished. Brush the tops of the scones with the milk/egg mix.
  • bake for 12-15 minutes until risen, golden and cooked all the way through.
