There’s something delicious and comforting about warm cheese scones smothered in butter. I had a real craving for these the other day and considering I’ve now been a vegetarian since 2018, I adapted my Cheese & Bacon Scones recipe into Mini Cheese Scones!

Delicious with marmite too, if you like that sort of thing! (Which I do! Haha!)

This recipe makes about 20 mini cheese scones.


Crumb together the butter and flour, salt and baking powder using your hands or a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment.


It should resemble breadcrumbs.


Pour in the milk 1/3 at a time, mixing well between each addition.


Add in your grated cheese and mix well to form a dough.


Pat the dough out on a floured surface and cut out small circles.


Put these circles on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.


Paint the tops with milk and bake at 190C (fan assisted) for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Enjoy fresh and warm out of the oven with lots and lots of delicious butter.

These will last 2 days in an airtight container but for best results, eat fresh. If leaving to store, warm up in the microwave before enjoying.

Give it a try and let me know how you get on either on Facebook or Twitter or Instagram.
