While savoury scones aren’t very common in England, they are among my favourite â€˜snacks’.Â These are actually meant to be popped in the oven with a medley of chopped vegetables, but are equally good on their own, with a little butter.
- 175 g self-raising flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
- 25 g butter
- 75 g mature cheddar cheese, finely grated
- 1 large egg
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 3 â€“ 4 Ramson leaves
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Place the flour, salt, cayenne, butter and three quarters of the cheese in a food processor and whiz until well blended.
Beat together the egg and 2 tablespoons of the milk then add to the food processor.
Pulse to form a smooth, soft dough. Chop up the Ramson leaves and mix them in.
Form into six balls, and place on a tray in the oven for 20 mins.
Out the oven, slice, butter, and enjoy!
