Wheat Cheese Scones

My first time to make scones, and I think I'll make some more! It's easier to make than cakes and cookies :) I adapted the recipe from podcast Cheddar Cheese Scones. I didn't use sharp cheddar cheese, the only available I have is grated Parmesan. I like the way the cheese came out, little burnt and chewy.

2 cups wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
40g butter
2 tablespoon mustard
2/3 cup milk
1 cup grated cheese

In a bowl, mix well all the dry ingredients - flour, salt, paprika, and baking powder. Add the cubed butter and blend until crumbs form. Slowly add the milk and  mustard, mix to make soft, light dough, taking care not to over process the dough. Place the dough onto a lightly floured counter, with your hands form a small ball size. Place the scones on the prepared baking sheet,  brush the tops with milk and place some cheese. Baked in the pre-heated 200°C (400°F) for 18 - 20 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

I eat this kind of scones with soup, or simply with coffee :)

Yum, all the best dishes have browned and slightly chewy bits of cheese, right? Thanks for sharing with the Hearth and Soul hop.
