Cheddar Cheese Scones




  1. Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder.
  2. Mix the butter into the flour until it resembles fine bread crumbs.
  3. Blend in the cheese.
  4. Gradually add the milk, mixing it with a round bladed knife until the dough is soft and manageable.
  5. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface, divide into two equal portions and shape each portion into a round 3/4-inch thick. Cut each round into six triangular portions and set them on a greased baking tray; prick top with a fork.
  6. Bake the scones in the center of a preheated 425 degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
  7. Cool slightly before serving.
