These delicious savoury scones are perfect warm and slathered in butter! Super comforting and just what you need as we come into the cooler months!
450g Self-Raising Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
225g Grated Cheese + 25g more for decoration (we love using Maleny Cheese or Kenilworth Dairies cheddars!)
250g Maleny Dairies Natural Yoghurt
Pinch of Salt
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celcius (or 180 degrees Fan) and line a flat tray with baking paper.
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together into a large bowl.
Rub the butter into the flour mixture with your fingertips.
Stir in your grated cheese then add your Maleny Dairies Natural Yoghurt and start forming a soft (but not too wet) dough. Add more yogurt or flour as needed to get the right consistency.
Lightly knead the dough on a floured surface then roll out to approx. 2-3cm thick.
Cut your scones with a circle cutter and re-roll any scraps. A 6-7cm cutter should make around 12 scones, alternatively, you can roll out your dough into a rectangle then cut into 12 even squares for a more rustic look.
Place the scones on your baking tray and brush with a little yoghurt that has been let down with water (or any Maleny Dairies milk if you have it on hand!). Decorate with cheese.
Place your scones in your preheated oven for approx. 15min or until risen and golden.
Cool briefly on a wire rack then serve warm with butter.
** Tips: If not devouring straight away, cool your scones completely and store in an airtight container for up to 2 days or freeze to enjoy later. Reheat your scones in a microwave or a low temperature oven.
