Instructions
  1. In a large bowl sift the flour and baking powder
  2. Add in the butter and rub into the flour and baking powder with the tips of your fingers
  3. Add half the cheese, combine and then add in the remaining cheese
  4. Sprinkle in the chopped chives and ground cumin and mix together by hand
  5. OPTIONAL - add in a pinch of black pepper and salt
  6. Add the eggs to a measuring jug and pour in the milk to make 300ml. Stir together gently
  7. Pour the liquid into the bowl and bring together
  8. Place the mixture onto a well-floured surface and pat out until it is approximately 2-3cm deep
  9. Flour your cutter (and do so between every 2 cuts) and stamp out 10 scones
  10. 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
  11. Place on the top shelf of a pre-heated oven (220C) until golden and well-risen. This should take approximately 10-12 minutes
  12. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack. These are best enjoyed slightly warm spread with butter
