These are a big favourite of my sons, they are good with almost any soup or frankly just on their own.
This recipe will make about 1 dozen scones about the size of of the palm of your hand
2 cups of flour
1 1/2 tablespoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1/3 cup of butter
1 cup (or more) of grated cheese
3/4 cup of milk.
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt, then add the butter cut into chunks.
|In a glass bowl not just sitting on the board|
Add the grated cheese. I had some nice old white cheddar, but almost any type or combination of cheeses will do including Parmesan.
Mix with a fork until combined then add the milk. Add enough milk to hold everything together you may need a little more or less depending on flour humidity and measuring ability.
Scoop on to a cookie sheet with a spoon, I always use a silpat pad or parchment paper, just because it makes clean up easy and then they never stick.
Cook in a 350 oven for about 1/4 hour or more depending on size. They should be golden and crispy on the outside and light and moist on the inside.
