A delicious starter to any meal, best served with a glass of moscato or light sweet wine.
Ingredients50g butter, chilled and chopped
2 cups self raising flour
3/4 cup milk
80g blue cheese, finely crumbled
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
milk, extra, for brushing
caramelised onions, for serving
blue cheese, for serving
Tip: Scones are best made and enjoyed on the same day. Use a full flavoured blue cheese for robust flavoured scones.
- Rub butter into flour until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
- Add milk, blue cheese and thyme and stir with a round bladed knife stir until mixture comes together. Turn onto a lightly floured bench and knead only until just smooth.
- Pat out mixture until 2.5cm thick, measuring 16cm x 16cm and using a sharp knife, cut into 9 squares. Place on a paper lined tray, brush with extra milk and bake at 220oC for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown, and scones sound hollow when tapped. Remove from oven and wrap in a clean towel for 5-10 minutes.
- Serve warm with caramelised onions and extra blue cheese.
