Growing up in an English family there were certain things we ate that my friends were confused by. We used to eat things like

Heinz baked beans and English Cheddar quesadillas

Peanut Butter, Jelly and Butter Sandwiches

Shortbread

Egg and Chips

Jam Sponge and Custard

No mayo, butter only sandwiches

Beans on toast

Shredded cheese and ketchup sandwiches or shredded cheese and Branston pickle sandwiches

Chilli wasn’t topped with sour cream, chives and cheese we ate chilli over rice.

Scones not biscuits

Just to name a few

Scones were something my mom always made, I guess kind of like an American mom would make cookies my mom made scones or shortbread.

Scones are one of my favorite things, warm fresh out of the oven especially. Add some jam and cream and your set. Chocolate Orange Scones are my favorite sweet ones.

Goat Cheese Chive & Sun Dried Tomato Scones

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 14 minutes

Total Time: 34 minutes

Yield: 13 2-inch scones

Serving Size: 2 inch cookie cutter

Ingredients

  • 8oz All Purpose Flour
  • 2oz Unsalted Butter, cut into chunks and chilled
  • 1 1/2 oz milk
  • 1 1/2 oz cream
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 oz chives, chopped
  • 1 oz sun dried tomatoes, chopped (if using the jarred sun dried tomatoes pat off the excess oil)
  • 2 oz goat cheese, crumbled and chilled
  • 1 egg and a little water for an egg wash

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchement paper.
  2. In a large bowl add the flour and mix in the chilled butter. You want to rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips. Do this for about 5 minutes or so, so that the mixture looks like bread crumbs and there are no more large chunks of butter.
  3. In a small bowl add milk, cream and egg, whisk to combine. Add this mixture to the dry mixture, mix until just combined. Fold in the chives and sun dried tomatoes. Then fold in goat cheese, knead the mixture into a disc about 3/4 inch thick. You can cut them into triangles or you can use a cookie cutter/ biscuit cutter. I used a 2 inch round cutter and made 13 scones.
  4. Place scones on baking sheet, 9 at a time.
  5. In a small bowl mix together the egg and a little water. Using a pastry brush, brush each scone with the egg wash.
  6. Bake scones for 12-14 minutes, turning the tray around after 8 minutes.
  7. Let cool for 5 minutes on tray and then store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
