Bite-size Bonanza - Cheesy Spicy Scones
Created by Carrot Cake. Uploaded by Cyrai
About the bite-size: From browsing GBS food and goons with spoons the majority of recipes seem to be main meals. I tend to do my most interesting and fun cooking when I'm having people over. Especially when I'm having a party, it's an excuse for me to make those special 'sometimes foods' and be snobby and decadent. I'm having a Christmas Party next weekend so I'm preparing a bunch of party foods. Everything will be in small portions that people can just grab and eat by hand.
Okay the first recipe I bring you is for a good savory scone. Not too complex Keep in mind that I'm Australian and we use The Metric System! So American goons will need to do some converting. HAHA How do YOU LIKE IT?
Makes about 12
- 2 cups Self Raising Flour
- Pinch Salt
- 30g Butter Chopped
- 3/4 cup Milk
- 60g Butter
- 1/2 Cup grated Tasty Cheese
- 1 Teaspoon Mustard (I use Dijon)
- 1/2 Teaspoon chilli sauce or a few drops of Tabasco Sauce
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees (moderate heat)
Sift Flour and Salt together into a bowl. Sifting is important when your baking, don't skip it.
Add butter, it's a lot easier if you've already cut it into pieces. Wash your hands and then start rubbing the butter and flour together with your fingertips until you've got what appear to be slightly lumpy flour.
Make a well in the center and pour the milk all in at once. Start stirring immediately with a metal butter knife. Mix quickly until you have a soft sticky dough. Don't over mix.
Lightly flour a surface and then give the dough a light kneading. Press or roll it out until it's about 2cm thick.
Cut into small rounds, I don't have a good size cutter so I use a large shot glass. Place the rounds close together on a lightly greased baking tray.
Time to prepare the topping. Throw all the ingredients into a saucepan and heat gently, stirring until melted.
Spoon liberally over each scone.
Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until they look nice and golden.
Cool on a wire rack.
