Scones, Cheddar Cheese (D, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Yield: 12 scones

2 cups (500ml) all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon (15ml) baking powder
1 tablespoon (15ml) sugar
1/2 teaspoon (2ml) salt
1/2 teaspoon (2ml) dry mustard
3 tablespoons (45ml) butter at room temperature, cut into small pieces
3 oz. (80g) Cheddar cheese, grated
1 egg
1/2 cup (125ml) milk

Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and cut in the butter using a fork. Add the cheese, stirring just enough to incorporate.

Beat the egg and milk together and add to the flour mixture, stirring as little as possible.

Turn out onto a floured surface and pat down to a thickness of about 1-1/2" (4cm). Cut into 2" (5cm) rounds and place on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 425°F (220°C) oven for 13 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.
