  • Fold in the grated cheese with your fingers until it is evenly incorporated.
  • Add the milk, and cut it in using a dinner knife.

  • Place the scones on a greased baking tray, brush the tops with milk and add a little finely grated cheese on top, and underneath each one.
  • Place the tray into the preheated oven and set your timer for 14 minutes, times may vary between 13 and 17 minutes due to varying temperatures of different ovens.
  • When the time is up, remove from the oven when golden brown and allow them to cool on a wire rack.
