Chorizo and cheddar scones

Chorizo and cheddar scones


  1. Preheat oven to 230°C/450°F/Gas Mark 8. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Sift flour into a large bowl, then rub in butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  3. Stir cheese and chorizo into flour. Then add milk and mix to a soft but not sticky dough.
  4. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.
  5. Roll out to 2cm (¾in) thick and cut out rounds with a 7.5cm (3in) circular cutter. Repeat until dough is used up.
  6. Place on baking sheet and brush tops with milk. Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden. Cool slightly on a wire rack. Serve warm or cold.
