Cheese and Chive Scones
Despite making lots of tasty treats at home, I can't resist the "I want it to taste like the bakery/coffee shop ones..." thoughts that arise. With these savory scones, my desire was finally fulfilled.
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
0.5 teaspoon salt, & pepper
0.333 cup unsalted butter, cubed (the butter needs to be firm but not very hard)
1 cup mature cheddar cheese, grated
2 tablespoons chives, finely chopped
0.75 cup milk
1 egg wash
Pre-heat the oven to 350F.
In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt&pepper together.
Add the butter and with your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until you have a mixture resembling coarse breadcrumbs.
Add the cheese and chives and mix through.
With a knife, cut the milk into the flour and butter mixture until you have a soft dough.
Turn the dough onto a floured surface and working very gently, bring together into a disc around 3-4cm in height. With a very sharp cookie cutter, cut out scones then place onto the lined baking tray.
Whisk the egg then brush the tops of your scones and place in the oven.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until the scones are risen and golden brown.
