Cheese Scones

This beautiful scone is care of "Angel" - my lovely niece (sort of a "guest blogger" today); who also took the pictures.
Looks like they came out perfect.

Cheese Scones

Makes: 14 scones

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all purpose flour [750 mL]
  • 1/2 cup sugar [125 mL]
  • 5 tsp baking powder [25 mL]
  • 1/2 tsp salt `[2 mL]
  • 3/4 cup butter/margarine [175 mL] (I used Parkay)
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk [250 mL]
  • 1 cup grated aged cheddar cheese [250 mL]

Procedure

  1. Preheat oven to 450*F [250*C].
  2. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients.
  3. Cut in margarine to resemble coarse oatmeal.
  4. Add milk and cheese to a slightly beaten egg and stir into dry ingredients.
  5. Place dough on a floured surface and knead lightly (about 12 times). Pat dough into desired thickness and cut with a 2 inch (5cm) cookie cutter. (I made mine smaller because I needed more)
  6. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Notes

  1. From the "Treats to Remember: a collection of special recipes from the University of British Columbia Bakeshop" cookbook (1995)
