Sundried Tomato & Parmesan Scones

Serve our delicious savoury scones with a bowl of hot soup – perfect for a cold January day.

Ingredients:
  • 225g self raising flour
  • 50g butter
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • 70g finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 60g sundried tomatoes
  • 1 medium egg, beaten
  • 100mls milk

Follow these steps

  • Prepare the sundried tomatoes by draining on kitchen paper to remove any excess oil, then finely chop
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200degC.
  • Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl, then add the salt, baking powder and dried herbs. Rub in the butter until the mix resembles fine breadcrumbs
  • Mix through the grated Parmesan cheese and chopped tomatoes.
  • Stir in the beaten egg and enough milk to form a soft, slightly sticky dough.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead very lightly. Roll out to about 2cm thickness. Cut into rounds and place on a baking tray. Gather the scraps of dough and roll out again - cut more rounds. Continue until all the dough is formed into scones
  • Bake in the pre-heated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until well risen and golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly - serve warm with a little butter.
