About the bake

These Stilton and Parsley scones truly are delicious for a bit of added heat- add some cayenne pepper. Perfect for a picnic! Why not try making mini ones for canapés too?

How do you make scones rise and not spread?

Make sure your oven is at the right temperature (200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6) before you put your scones in. This is because placing dough in a cool oven that slowly heats up affects the rising agent.

  1. Step 1:

    Pre heat the oven to 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 6).

  2. Step 2:

    Mix together the flour, salt, pepper and mustard. Rub in the butter then stir in the Stilton and herbs.

  3. Step 3:

    Add enough milk to make a dough that is not too wet, you may not need it all. Gather together and knead lightly.

  4. Step 4:

    Place the dough on a floured board and pat out until about 3cm thick. Using a 5-6 cm round cutter, stamp out about 10-12 scones, re rolling the dough if needed.

  5. Step 5:

    Place scones on a greased and floured baking sheet, and bake in oven for 12-15 minutes until golden.
