Garlic Scones (Contributed by: Robert W Nance)


What you’ll need:

2 cups of Self Raising Flour
2 Table spoons of butter
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1 garlic clove minced
1 cup of milk

How to get your cooking on:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.

In a large bowl, sift together flour and salt (¼ to ½ Tablespoon). Rub in butter lightly with finger tips until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in cheese and garlic. Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the milk, reserving 1 teaspoon for a glazing the scones. Gently mix, just until combined.

Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead briefly and lightly. Be careful not to overwork the dough. Press out dough to form a 1-inch thick round. Cut into 8 wedges. Place on prepared tray and brush with reserved milk.

Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 20 minutes, or until light brown. Serve hot or let cool on a wire rack.
