2 cups cake flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper or cayenne pepper
5 tbs. butter
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cups grated cheese
1 cup sliced Biltong or Grated Biltong
Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.
Sift together the dry ingredients.
Rub in the grated butter with your fingertips.
Beat the eggs and blend with the milk.
Cut in the liquid with a spatula; do not knead the dough.
Add more milk if needed so that the dough is stiff enough to roll out.
Place the dough on a floured surface and flatten gently with your hands to a thickness of 1 inch.
Cut into rounds with a biscuit cutter.
Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until the scones are nicely browned on top.
Serve with butter and Biltong to impress your friends and family.
