Cheese & Onion Scones

Scones are so quick and easy to make and always good.  try these delicious cheese & onion scones for a savoury treat!

2 cups (300gr) SR flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
60gr butter
1/2 cup grated cheese of choice (I used a sharp tasty)
approx 1/4 cup chopped spring (green) onions
approx 3/4 cups milk & water (mixed)

sift flour and salt into basin. rub the butter in with your fingers (use a pastry cutter if liked) until mix resembles fine bread crumbs. make a well in the centre and add almost all liquid to form a soft dough (it will depend on your flour if you'll  need to add more or less liquid) add cheese and onion and mix into the dough.

place on floured surface and knead lightly, pat out until approx 3/4 to an inch thick.  cut into rounds (you should get 12)  place onto a greased baking tray edges slightly touching, glaze tops with milk or beaten egg and bake in hot oven about 12 minutes or until golden (bottoms should sound hollow when tapped)  serve warm with butter.
