Scone Dough

The trick here is to mix it in with a blunt knife. Don’t over knead it and you have the lightest scones ever. The milk needs to be blood temp or the cold makes the pastry go tough. Too warm and the butter melts.

  • 500g self-raising flour
  • 150g cold unsalted butter – can be grated too or diced.
  • 1 cup milk – tepid
  • salt, pepper
  • quarter cup onion – finely diced
  • half cup tasty cheese – grated.

  6. using a blunt knife, stir in tepid milk until just mixed but still soft and pliable.
  7. layer dough mix across the top of the meat.
  8. brush milk/egg mix over the dough.
