Making Cheese Scones

These are a very easy and quick snack which you can eat just with butter or use for little sandwiches.  Great for a picnic.
Ingredients: 150g self raising flour, salt and pepper, tsp mustard powder, 25g butter, 75g grated cheese, milk.  Set the oven to 220.  Mix the flour, salt, pepper, and mustard in a mixing bowl.  Cut the butter into small pieces and rub into the flour.  Stir in most of the cheese - leaving a little bit to sprinkle on top of the scones!
Then add enough milk to mix into a firm dough.  I keep adding a little at a time - if you add too much you can always add more flour.  Once a dough is formed, knead on a flurd surface until smooth.
Pat the dough down and cut it into 8 pieces.  I don't bother using a cutter, a knife is all I need.
Then put them onto a baking tray, either greased or lined with baking paper, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and bake for about 15 mins
We made these ones at home but the children at nursery also enjoyed making cheese scones this week.  It makes a nice change from all the cakes and cookies.  It's nice to make something savory and the children ate the cheese scones with butter for their tea!
