Chorizo & manchego scones
- Preparation and cooking time
- Cook: -
- 225g self-raising flour , plus extra for dusting
- ¼ tsp salt
- 50g butter , very cold, diced
- 60g chorizo
- 110g manchego
- pinch of smoked paprika
- 150ml buttermilk (or milk)
- STEP 1
Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Put the flour, salt and butter in a food processor and pulse until you can’t feel any lumps of butter (or rub in any remaining lumps with your fingers).
- STEP 2
Cut 60g chorizo and 60g manchego into small cubes and add them to the pulsed dry flour mixture with a pinch of smoked paprika.
- STEP 3
Stir the buttermilk into the mixture and use a knife to quickly combine everything together to form a dough – stop when it has just combined and don’t overmix it.
- STEP 4
Tip the dough onto a floured surface and lightly bring it together with your hands a couple of times. Press out gently until about 4cm thick, then stamp out 6-7cm rough squares. Re-shape any trimmings until all the dough is used. Grate another 50g manchego over the scones before baking. Spread out on a lightly floured baking sheet and bake for 10-12 mins or until well risen and golden.
