Method


Pre heat the oven to gas 7.

Beat the egg and mix in the milk.

In the mixer, using the K beater:
Mix the flour, salt and baking powder dry.
Cut the butter into small pieces and rub in.
Mix in the cheese, but reserve a small amount for the topping.

Change to the dough hook and add most of the milk and egg mixture, mix to form a workable dough.

Roll out to about 22mm thick on a floured surface.

Place on a floured baking sheet and glaze with the last of the milk and egg mixture.

Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and bake on the top shelf for about 10-15 minutes until golden.

Check if they're done by tapping the bottom - if they sound hollow then they're ready.

Eat warm with butter - Yummy...
