A beautiful, butter, cheesy scone. These cheese and chive savoury scones are perfect for any occasion.


  • 3 1/2 cups self raising flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 65/2.2 g/oz butter, cubed
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 tbsp fresh chives
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese, finely grated
  • extra cheese and milk for top


  • Preheat oven to 200C/400F
  • Line your large baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Add the flour, salt, pepper and sugar to a large bowl and stir.
  • Add the cubed butter, and use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. This should take around 8-10 minutes.
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour, then add in the milk, cheese and chives.
  • Use a knife to 'cut' the mixture, combining it together well.
  • Dust a clean surface with flour, then turn out the dough to knead. Continue to add flour if the dough gets too sticky.
  • Shape the dough into a disc measuring a height of 4cm/2 inches. Dip your mason jar or cookie cutter into flour, then cut out round discs of dough.
  • Place the dough discs in your prepared baking tray. It doesn't matter if they touch. You should make around 12 scones.
  • Place in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, checking every so often to ensure they're cooking evenly.
  • Remove from oven and serve immediately with butter.
