Spring onion or scallion scones

Makes 8 large scones

2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1 tbsp + 2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp salt
4 ounces grated cheese - I used purrano
4 ounces cream cheese - I used one with garlic, microwave if necessary it should be soft
4 scallions, sliced both green and white parts
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 egg
  1. Preheat oven to 400 deg.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a big bowl.
  3. Add cheeses and use a fork to fold the flour over the cheeses. Don't overwork the mixture.
  4. Add scallions and use the fork to lightly combine.
  5. Beat the egg with milk and whipping cream in another bowl. Fold this into the flour and cheese mixture. Comine until its roughly mixed.
  6. Flour the working surface and your hands. Get the flour mixture out and form a pie about an inch thick. Use a floured knife to cut the pie into 8 wedges.
  7. Brush the scones with a mixture of 1 egg and 2 tbsp of flour. Bake scones on a buttered baking dish for 20mins. Let cool before serving with some jalapeno jelly :)
