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!
