Blue Cheese & Thyme Scones with Mary Berry’s Blue Cheese Dressing

Ingredients: Serves 2

• 130g unsalted butter, chilled and cubed 

• 500g self-raising flour, sifted, plus extra for rolling  

• 1½ tsp sea salt flakes

• Black pepper (to taste) 

• 275ml whole milk, plus extra for glazing  

• 200g blue cheese  

• 25g thyme 

• 4 Tbsp Mary Berry’s Blue Cheese Dressing


Preheat the oven to 220˚C, gas mark 8.

In a large bowl, rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs, then add the salt and a good grind of black pepper.

Mix in the milk and Mary Berry’s Blue Cheese Dressing with a cutlery knife until the dough starts to come together, then crumble in the blue cheese and most of the thyme.

Knead the dough briefly, until smooth; don’t overwork it. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 2cm thick, then cut out 12 scones using a 7cm pastry cutter. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking tray.

Brush the tops with a little milk and bake for 15-18 minutes, until golden and risen; allow to cool on a wire rack.

Serve the scones warm and drizzle some extra Mary Berry’s Blue Cheese Dressing on top and enjoy!
