September 13 Cheese Scones

Everyone loves cheese. Audrey made some tasty treats and learned to cut out shapes with a cookie cutter. This was such an easy recipe I think we are going to use it again with other flavors. We found the recipe in Audrey's 30 Healthy Things to Cook and Eat cooking cards:
Little Cheese Scones

  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 2/3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 level tsp baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 425°F. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Cut the butter into small pieces and add to the bowl. Rub it in until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. Mix in the grated cheese and milk and mix well. Gently squeeze the mixture together with your hands to make a soft dough. Roll the dough out on a floured surface until it is about 1/2 inch thick. Use 1 1/2 inch cookie cutters to cut out the shapes. Squeeze the scraps together and roll them out again. Cut out more shapes. Put the shapes  on a greased baking tray and bake for 7-8 minutes. Place on a wire rack to cool.

We tried to make a video of this post but had technical difficulties. Fortunately I took a photo before and after.
