#Baking – Olive and cheese scones
These scones are amazing. I had two and that is something I rarely do.
450 grams self raising flour
100 grams butter, cubed
225 grams grated cheddar cheese
1 packet (200 grams) black olives stoned and cut in half
120 ml milk
120 ml cold water
Pre-heat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl. Add the cubed butter and rub into the flour, using your fingers, until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add the cheese and the olives. Mix the dry ingredients, then make a well in the centre, and pour in the milk and the water. Mix until a soft dough forms.
Turn out onto a floured surface and pat to about 1 centimetre thick. Cut out circles using a glass or cookie cutter. Place on baking trays. Brush the tops with a little milk. Bake for +- 15 minutes until golden brown.
