Cheese Scones

I found a meal plan on wedonteatanythingwithaface’s blog last week & it suggested having squash soup with cheese scones which sounded like a fantastic idea to me! AND I thought they would go down pretty well with my cheese and squash-loving family – I wasn’t wrong, they wolfed them down!

I cooked the scones in my small oven, which is very narrow. Because I cooked them on different shelves, they were ready at two different times which worked out quite well – I think if the second scone had been available straight away less soup would have been eaten!


  • 200g SR flour
  • 50g organic butter
  • 100g grated organic strong cheddar-type cheese
  • ½ tsp mustard powder
  • ½ tsp paprika (optional)
  • 10 tbsp organic milk


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C
  2. Mix the butter, mustard, parprika (if using) & flour together. I did this in my food processor & it worked really well!
  3. Tip the mixture into a mixing bowl, add the cheese & stir
  4. Slowly add the milk – 9-10 tbsp was how much I needed to make a firm dough.
  5. Roll it out to no thinner than 2cm thick, then cut out the scones with a round biscuit cutter. Place on a baking tray & put in the oven
  6. This mix made 8 large scones which took about 15mins to cook.
