Introduction: Chilli Cheese Scones

Cheese scones are my husband's favourite snack - and he loves chilli with everything. So I decided to try combining them. And they came out superbly -he ate four!

Step 1: Ingredients

175 g self-raising flour
Half a teaspoon salt
Half a teaspoon mustard powder (or any mustard)
25 g butter
100 g grated cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons yogurt or milk
Chopped red chilli to taste (I used 2 large mild chillies)
Milk to glaze

Step 2: Make the Dough

Mix the dry ingredients and rub in the butter until no lumps remain. Mix in most of the cheese and most of the chilli, saving a bit of each for topping the scones.
Add the egg and yogurt and mix to a sticky dough.

Step 3: Shape the Scones

Put the dough on a floured board and pat into a square shape about 2cm thick. Cut into 8 triangles. Put on a baking tray lined with parchment or foil. Brush with milk, sprinkle with cheese and chilli.

Step 4: Bake the Scones

Bake in an oven preheated to 220 deg/ 200 deg fan/ gas Mark 7 for about 15 minutes until golden brown.
Cool for a few minutes, serve warm,
