How to Make Perfect Savoury Cheese Scones:
- Preheat the oven to a hot 220 degrees Celcius
- Line a large baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
- Sift the flour, salt and mustard powder into a large bowl.
- Grate the butter into the flour mix, then use your fingers to 'pinch' the butter into the mix until it resembles breadcrumbs.
- Add the finely grated Parmesan cheese and the chives and mix well.
- Pour in the cold milk and cold water and mix with a butter knife until just combined (don't overmix or it will make the scones tough).
- Pour the mix out onto a floured board and press the mix down with your fingers until it is about 3cm thick.
- Use a scone cutter to cut out the scones and place them on the baking tray about 3cm away from each other.
- Beat the egg and add the extra milk to the egg mixture.
- Use the egg and milk mixture to dab on top of the scones to enhance browning and bake for 12 minutes or until the scones are golden.
