Cheese scones are a savoury take on the traditional sweeter afternoon scone, but we like that these ones have a little something extra with the addition of chives and ground cumin.
You can find a printable version of this recipe at the bottom of this post so you can make these yummy scones at home, or watch the video to see the recipe in action.
In a large bowl sift the flour and baking powder
Add in the butter and rub into the flour and baking powder with the tips of your fingers
Add half the cheese, combine and then add in the remaining cheese
Sprinkle in the chopped chives and ground cumin and mix together by hand
OPTIONAL - add in a pinch of black pepper and salt
Add the eggs to a measuring jug and pour in the milk to make 300ml. Stir together gently
Pour the liquid into the bowl and bring together
Place the mixture onto a well-floured surface and pat out until it is approximately 2-3cm deep
Flour your cutter (and do so between every 2 cuts) and stamp out 10 scones
Using a non-stick baking tray or lightly buttered baking tray place your scones evenly spread apart, brush with any leftover liquid and sprinkle with some extra grated cheese
Place on the top shelf of a pre-heated oven (220C) until golden and well-risen. This should take approximately 10-12 minutes
Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack. These are best enjoyed slightly warm spread with butter
