Parmesan and Basil Scones

Recipe by FlemishMinx
READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 9 scones




  • Pre-heat oven to 190°C.
  • In a large bowl, crumble the butter into the flour, working it in with your hand until it is no longer discernible from the flour.
  • Add the cheese, salt, baking soda, mustard powder and basil, mixing well.
  • Add the milk, beginning with 120 ml, and then adding a little at a time until you achieve a soft dough that sticks together in a ball in your bowl.
  • This is normally a bit more than 180 ml in total, but will depend on your flour and the humidity on the day.
  • Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface in a square to a thickness of 1 1/2 cm (1/2 inch).
  • Make three equal horizontal, then vertical cuts resulting in 9 scones.
  • Place each scone on a non-stick baking sheet, and bake for 12-15 minutes or until they are lightly browned.
