Herb Scones

  • 3 cups self-raising flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • pinch cayenne pepper

  • 50g butter, chilled, chopped

  • 1/2 cup mixed herbs (such as oregano, rosemary and dill), finely chopped

  • 1/3 cup grated light tasty cheese

  • 1 cup reduced-fat milk

  • 1/3 cup natural yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives

  • 100g 97% fat-free shaved leg ham



  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.  Grease a baking tray butter.

  2. Sift flour into a large bowl. Add salt, cayenne pepper and pepper. Mix well to combine. Add butter. Using your hands, rub butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

  3. Add herbs and cheese to flour mixture. Stir well to combine. Add milk. Mix with a flat-bladed knife until a soft dough forms. Knead lightly on a floured surface. Pat dough into a 2cm-thick round. Using a round cookie cutter, cut into 12 rounds. Place rounds close together on a baking tray.

  4. Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden and well-risen. Set aside on baking tray to cool slightly.

  5. Combine yoghurt, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Halve scones. Top 12 halves with shaved ham and chive mixture. Sandwich together with remaining scone halves. Serve.
