  • 170g Self Raising flour
  • 30g Margarine
  • 85g Chedder Cheese plus extra for topping
  • Salt, pepper and 1 teaspoon English mustard powder
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk


  1. Heat oven to 220c/fan 200c/gas 7. Place the flour in a large bowl, then rub in the butter. Add the cheese and seasoning. I find a strong cheddar works best, but will work equally as well with a medium strength.

  2. Mix in the milk and beaten egg.

  3. Roll out mixture to approx 1.5 cm and cut into triangles. Place on a backing tray and brush tops with milk and sprinkle over the remaining cheese.

  4. Bake in oven for 15 mins.
