Description

Grated parmesan cheese gives these savory scones their distinctive flavor, while chili powder lends them a kick of spicy heat. When mixing and kneading the dough, its important not to overwork it, or the scones will be tough, not tender, after baking. Here, the dough is rolled out and cut into rounds with a biscuit cutter. Cut them out as close together as possible, and reroll the scraps once to cut out more rounds.

Ingredients

200 grams flour
130 grams corn flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
chili powder
120 grams butter

2Sieve the flour and mix with the cornflour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and a pinch of chili powder.

4Add the cheese and mix well.
5In a separate bowl, beat 2 eggs with the milk.
6Add the egg and milk mixture to the flour mix and blend together using a fork.
7Using your hands, work into a smooth dough ball, adding flour as necessary if it appears too sticky.
8On a floured surface, roll out the dough to 2-centimeters thick.
