Delicious cheese scones by by Susie at The Cotswolds Baking Workshop


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees fan.  Place the flour, salt, baking powder, and cayenne in a large bowl.  Rub the butter into the dry ingredients with fingers to create fine breadcrumbs. Add the cheddar and gently rub in.  Add most of the buttermilk and bring the mixture together using a dough scraper. If the mixture looks dry add the last bit of buttermilk. Knead lightly on a surface,  taking care not to overwork the dough.  Cut out scones using a round cutter or cut into wedges. Bake on a lined baking tray for 12 to 16 minutes or until well risen and golden on top. 

Thank you to Susie at The Cotswolds Baking Workshop for this delicious recipe!
