Cheese and Zucchini Scones

Makes about 12

8oz self-raising flour
2 oz butter (or margarine)
2 ½ fl oz milk
2 oz cheddar cheese, grated
1 zucchini, peeled and grated
Pinch of salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 425° Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

In a large mixing bowl sift the flour and salt and pepper. Then add the butter in small pieces to the flour and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Make a well in the middle and slowly add the milk, cheese and zucchini. Mix well until you get a soft dough.

Place the dough onto a floured surface and knead for a minute. Press the dough to about 1” thickness and cut out rounds with a cup, mug or pastry cutter.

Place the rounds onto a greased baking sheet (about 1” apart), brush with milk and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes.
