Cheese Ploughman’s scones! This weekend we celebrated my daughters 2nd birthday and as part of the party food, we had a mid afternoon scone break. (This photo was taken in the evening) I made a regular scone to have with jam and clotted cream, but I also made a savoury scone, which I assembled to be eaten as is. The scone itself is a cheddar cheese scone, and for the filling I added a couple of thin slices of Braeburn apple, a tomato and birds eye chilli relish, and some fresh cress. These were really well received. Scones can be made in many different ways! Any ideas for what I can try next?

Method
1. Heat the oven to 220C. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
2. Mix together the flour, salt and butter and rub it till they are combined.
3. Add in the cheese and then add milk slowly until you get a soft dough.
4. Turn on to a floured surface and knead very lightly. Pat out to a round 2cm thick. Using a 5cm cutter or cutter of your choice – stamp out rounds and place on a baking sheet. Lightly knead together the rest of the dough and stamp out more scones to use it all up.
5. Brush the tops of the scones with milk or beaten egg. Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden.
6. Cool on a wire rack and then fill the scones with apple slices, relish and cress.
