I only started making savoury scones in the past few months. I totally love that they are so versatile. You can add whatever you have on hand or you can include ingredients based on who will be eating them. For example, you can add cheese and ham for the kids or sun-dried tomatoes and/or olives for the adults. You can enjoy them plain or with lashings of butter, warmed in the microwave or cold in the school lunch box. Yum!
- 4 cups (500 g) Self-Raising flour
- 1 cup (240 ml) milk or cream
- 1 cup (240 g) savoury filling (grated cheese, onion, ham, bacon, olives, sun dried tomatoes)
- Pinch salt
- Extra flour for dusting
- Spray oil or butter for greasing trays
- Heat your oven to 190C/375F.
- Spray two baking trays with baking paper and grease with oil spray or butter
- Mix the flour, milk/cream, savoury filling and salt in a large mixing bowl until well combined.
- Add a touch more milk/cream if required to get a dough consistency.
- Sprinkle some flour onto your bench then flatten out to about one inch thick.
- Using a circular cookie cutter or the rim of a drinking glass or jar to cut rounds out of the dough.
- Place the circles on the prepared tray so they are just touching each other.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden on top and hollow sounding when you tap them.
- Serve warm spread with butter.
