Cheese Scones

Ingredients:
8 oz Self-raising Flour
2 oz Margarine / Butter
Pinch Salt
2 - 4 oz grated Cheese (strong-flavoured such as cheddar)
Ground pepper
Approx. 3/4 cup of milk (take care not to use more than is necessary)

Sift the flour and add salt and pepper, then rub in the margarine or butter.
Add the grated cheese and combine with the mixture.
Pour in a little of the milk and mix carefully until the mixture becomes a soft but not sticky dough.
Roll out and cut into rounds and bake in a hot oven (Gas mark 7) for 10 - 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and when cool enough to handle make a cut in the side of the scone, through to the centre and push in a small slice of the cheese.
The scones may be returned to the hot oven in order to melt the cheese a little.
May be served hot or cold (tastier when cold)
The scones in the pic above also contain in its dough mix : 1 chopped red chilli pepper (seeds removed) and a little chopped celery (from very fine stalks of celery that we have available here in Libya - it looks more like flat-leaved parsley than the celery that is available in the UK for example).

Wa jazakiAllah khair sister. The flour I used does not seem to have been very self-raising though - scones should be a bit thicker.

Tip:

Something else I should mention is that even though the end product looks similar to bread, the dough should not be kneaded as a bread dough would be, but should be handled lightly like a pastry, otherwise the scone will be heavy and doughy even after cooking as the air will have been knocked out of it.
