3 cups self-raising flour 50g butter, cubed ½ cup crumbled goat's or cow's milk feta cheese 3 spring onions, finely sliced 1¼ cups milk Extra flour for dusting Extra milk to brush 1. Heat
- Heat oven to 200degC. Place flour and butter in a bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
- Stir in feta and spring onion and make a well in the centre. Pour milk into the well and mix quickly to just combine.
- Knead mixture very lightly to bring together into a soft dough. on a work surface dusted with flour, roll out dough to 3cm thick.
- Cut out rounds with a pastry cutter (or cut into squares, if preferred) and place on a greased oven tray. Lightly brush tops of scones with milk. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 10.
Tip: once the wet ingredients have been added to the flour, try to mix and work the scone dough as little as possible so that your finished scones will turn out soft and light.
