DIRECTIONS

  • Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs and no lumps of butter remain.
  • Add the two types of grated cheese, the salt and the hot pepper flakes.
  • make a well in the centre and add the beaten eggs with the splash of soda or mineral water and mix all ingredients together until a soft dough is formed. Add a little more water if necessary but take care not to make the dough too sticky.
  • Place the dough on a clean floured surface and knead it very slightly until it is smooth.
  • Roll out with a rolling pin until approximately 3/4 inch thick, then use a round cookie cutter to cut out rounds.
  • Place the rounds on a baking sheet.
  • Bake at 200 degrees celsius for around 15 to 20 minutes or until the scones are golden brown on top.
  • Cool on a cooling rack.
