Scottish Cheese Scones

8 oz. (200 g.) self-raising flour.
1 1/2 oz. (40 g.) butter.
4 oz. (100g.) grated cheese.
1 teaspoon (5 ml.) baking powder.
1 teaspoon (5 ml.) mustard.
Pinch of salt.
1/2 pint (250 ml.) milk.

Method

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together. Rub in the butter until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Stir in half the cheese and the mustard. Add enough milk to give a fairly soft dough. Roll out on a floured board to a thickness of 3/4 inch ( 2 cm. ) and cut into 24nch ( 5 cm. ) rounds. Sprinkle with the rest of the cheese. Bake in a hot oven ( 425°F, 218°C, gas mark 7 ) for 10 minutes. Serve split and buttered.
