Recipe: Cheese Scones


2 Tbs. cold butter
¾ cup flour
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
½  tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried mustard
¼ cup grated cheese
1/3 – 1/2 cup milk


Preheat oven to 350°.  Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together.  Cut the butter into the flour until it has the consistency of cornmeal. Stir in cheese.  Add the smaller amount of milk and stir; add more milk if needed to get a firm but slightly wet dough. Knead a bit, then shape into a circle a little bigger than a CD. Cut into six wedges. Separate and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 12 minutes.
