Very Tasty Cheesy Cheddar and Oat Scones

Recipe by French Tart
READY IN: 22mins
YIELD: 12 Scones




  • Preheat oven to 220C - gas 7.
  • In a large roomy bowl rub softened butter into flour until they resemble breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in oats & cheese, then add the milk - if it feels too dry, add a touch more milk.
  • Bring it all together and make a soft dough.
  • Lightly dust a surface with flour and roll out the dough until NO thinner than 2cm.
  • Using a 4cm scone/cookie cutter firmly stamp out the rounds - do NOT twist as you stamp as it stops the scones from rising evenly!
  • Re-roll all the trimings and stamp out some more rounds until the dough is finished.
  • Place on a non-stick baking tray/sheet or one which has been lined with non-stick baking paper. Dust with a little more flour OR glaze with a little milk & add some extra grated cheese for the topping if desired.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden.
  • Cool on a wire rack - if you can manage it!
  • Serve on their own or with Boursin soft cheese, Philadelphia cream cheese, sliced ham, cucumber, cress or just with BUTTER!
  • Cheese variation for the topping is grated parmesan mixed with a little paprika or cayenne pepper.
