Method

  1. Heat oven to 220c/fan 200c/gas 7. Place the flour in a large bowl, then rub in the butter. Stir in the oats and cheese, then the milk – if it feels like it might be dry, add a touch more milk, then bring together to make a soft dough.

  2. Lightly dust the surface with a little flour. roll out the dough no thinner than 2cm. Using a 4cm plain cutter, firmly stamp out the rounds – try not to twist the cutter as this makes the scones rise unevenly. re-roll the trimmings and stamp out more.

  3. Transfer to a non-stick baking sheet, dust with a little more flour or grated cheese, then bake for 12-15 mins until well risen and golden. Cool on a wire rack before serving on their own or topped with mashed avocado, or soft cheese, and ham, cucumber or cress.

Well, Iv never baked any type of scone in my life so as others have said after reading the reviews I thought here I go...really easy instructions but for some reason mine didn't really rise plus I left them in the oven for too long so I basically ended up with something representing cheese biscuits!! Ha, however they were lovely and the dog loved them too. I will defo make these again but next time il pay more attention. OH plus, I didn't have a rolling pin so I used the handle off the potato masher so maybe that didn't help!! :)

I decided to have a go at making these after I had read the reviews, and thought they would make a nice accompaniment to homemade carrot and Corriander soup.....as someone who has never made a scone of any type in my life, I found the recipe easy to follow and have to say they were delicious...we had them warm with our soup for lunch, and my 2 and 4 year old loved them....I have to say that I will be making these again!!!!! I added pepper, thyme and a little paprika to mine...were really nice cold also...

I made these with my son; they were very easy to make. We used plain yogurt instead of milk and added salt & pepper. The cheese lovers in the family thought these were great; may try chives and sundried tomatoes another time!

Delicious. Added wee bit extra cheese and some mustard as suggested by others and the scones tasted great with some butter and just as good toasted the next day. Added some chives next time I made them and they were lovely too - a good recipe.

Delicious and so easy to make. My husband loves cheesy scones and bread so these went down a treat. They aren't very big, but great for a cheesy treat without too many calories (if you can manage just to eat one!). Will be making them again.
