Super Cheesy Cheese Scones

Updated: Jul 25, 2020

I don't know about you, but I LOVE a cheese scone. But it just has to be super cheesy! I have made these many times and they are always a hit with Mr LDWB and family and friends alike. Don't be put off by the yoghurt; it makes them so light! The only trouble is they are so yummy it's difficult not to eat them all when they are fresh and still warm.......



Ingredients:450grams SR Flour

2 heaped tsp Baking Powder

Pinch of salt

50g butter - cut into cubes at room temperature

Cheese - I tend to just grate loads - say a bowl full. I use extra mature or a blend of 3 strong cheeses some as Gruyere.

500g pot of yoghurt - you may not need it all. I use fat free live yoghurt.



Method:


Rub the butter into the dry ingredients, much like you are making a crumble. Add most of the cheese leaving some for the tops. You then add the yoghurt a tablespoon at a time until it forms a dough. (if I have over egged the yoghurt I simply add a little more flour)


Roll it out to about a cm and half and cut using a 7cm round cutter (of course you can make them bigger if smaller if you wish)


Brush the tops with a little milk and add the rest of the cheese to the tops.


Bake at 180 degrees centigrade for 20mins.


Variations:


You can try these variations by simply adding the ingredients in when you add the cheese.


Chorizo and paprika

Bacon

Herbs

Poppy seeds


Also try with a fresh herb butter; simply chop up some chives and mix it with some softened butter.

Enjoy!
