These savory cheese and chive scones are delicious served warm with butter.


  • 1 1/2 cups self rising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons margarine or butter
  • 3/4 cup finely grated Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons finely snipped chives
  • 3/4 cup milk

  • Extra milk, for glazing


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease and flour a baking sheet. Sift flour and salt into a bowl. Rub in the margarine with the fingertips to make fine crumbs, then add cheese, chives and all but 2 tablespoons of the milk to make a soft dough. Add remaining milk only if needed.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Press out the dough with the fingertips until 3/4 inch thick. Cut into rounds with a floured biscuit cutter and place on the baking sheet.

Brush the tops with milk and bake for about 10 minutes, until well colored and cooked through.
