Cheese and Ham Scones

To make you will need:

3 cups of plain flour
6 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
75g butter cut into small cubes
1 - 1 ½ cups milk
1 cup grated cheese (of your choice - edam and tasty work well)
1 handful of cut up shaved ham

Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl, cut in butter until the mixture in the bowl resembles bread crumbs.  Add the milk and vigorously mix with a knife until dough is soft.  Add the cheese and ham and mix with the knife.  Use your hands to knead dough a few times (can be done in the bowl but I find it easier to do on a flour dusted bench top).  At this stage you can chose to place the dough on a flour dusted oven tray, mould the dough into a round shape and cut into wedges like the picture above or alternatively cut into 8-12 square pieces.  If you are cutting the mix into pieces leave a 2cm space between them on the tray.  Bake at 220˚C for 10-15 minutes or until an inserted skewer can be removed cleanly.
