Spicy Pesto and Cheese Scones

I love scones. Especially savoury scones. A friend on Insta posted an amazing and super simple recipe of cheese scones. Tara is someone who likes a hint of chilli and burst of flavour so I added some cayenne pepper and homemade pesto. Those are the only two things I can take credit for. Her recipe of cheese scones is too good.

She used 250 grams of self raising flour but I had just 200 grams at home. So I reduced all of the measurements to half.

Ingredients:

  1. 125 grams self raising flour
  2. 40 ml milk
  3. 50 grams grated cheese
  4. 45 grams butter
  5. 2 tbsp homemade pesto (recipe in blog)
  6. 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Method:

  1. Preheat oven at 190 degrees Celsius.
  2. Bring butter to room temperature. Mix it with with flour.
  3. Add cheese, pesto and cayenne pepper and give it all a good mix.
  4. Add milk slowly and make a stiff dough. Make sure you don’t use too much pressure because we don’t want thick and tough scones.
  5. Roll the dough to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into shape of your choice using cookie butters.
  6. Bake at 190 degrees Celsius for 15-20 minutes. It’s done when a skewer inserted comes out clean.
