PANDORO'S CHEESE SCONES

Makes 8

575g flour
15g baking powder
100g butter
10g salt
5g pepper
450ml milk

1. Heat the oven to 175C.

2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper with the butter until it looks like breadcrumbs.

3. Then add the milk, cheese and chopped onion and mix till combined. At this stage you need to be careful not to over mix or your scone will be tough.
