I usually make cheese scones but decided to retry this recipe for Cheese Puff Drop Scones… and they really are to die for!  So very light and tasty, made and ready to eat faster than scones, and far less mess, too!  I made a double mix (made 16 big ones), but the recipe – as given – will make 8 to 10.

Cheese Puff Drop Scones are a quick way to extend a meal, or have a robust snack in minutes, and unless you really over-mix, you just can’t go wrong.  Easy-peasy!

Ingredients:

1 egg
1/2 cup Milk
1 cup Plain Flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 pinch salt
2 cups Grated Cheese – I used tasty but any strong harder cheese is fine – try 1/2 a cup of Parmesan!

Optional: pinch of paprika or curry powder or any other herbs or spices you enjoy (I added fresh chopped parsley). A little grated onion (no more than 1/ a small one) is fine to add, too.

Method:

Preheat  oven to 200C (400F).

Whisk together egg & milk in a medium sized bowl. Add to that the flour, baking powder, salt & cheese (I also added a pinch of curry powder). Mix lightly but well until just combined.

Prepare a baking tray with non stick oil spray, dust with a little flour, and dollop tablespoons of the mixture evenly spaced onto the tray.

Bake in a hot oven 200C (400F) for 10 minutes or until just golden brown and sounds hollow to tap.

Place a clean tea towel on an cooling rack, place Cheese Puff Drop Scones on this, and cover for a few minutes – IF you can…..  I bet you’ll be eating them hot, with lashings of butter – and the smell is divine, too!   Enjoy!

NOTE: I doubled the recipe for these photos – again I had a hungry hoard to feed!
