Method:

1. Preheat oven to 200°/180°F/Gas 6.

2. Sift together flour, salt and baking powder into a large bowl.

3. Add the butter to the bowl and combine with your fingertips so the mixture resembles a breadcrumb texture.

4. Sprinkle in the cheese and ensure it’s evenly distributed.

5. Create a well in the centre of the mixture, pour in enough milk to form a dough like texture.

6. Lightly cover your work surface with flour and roll out the dough so it’s approximately 2cm thick.

7. Using a medium sized cutter, cut into 6 pieces or more, depending on the desired size.

8. Brush the top of the scones with milk and sprinkle a handful of cheese on top of each one.

9. Place in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes until the scones look golden and well risen.
