Servings 810 scones


  • 1 cup All purpose flour
  • ½ cup Whole wheat flour
  • tsps Baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 3 tbsps Butter Cold – cut into cubes
  • ¾ cup Cheese – grated (I used jack cheese, but Corina's original recipe called for cheddar)
  • 100 ml Milk
  • 3 tbsps Scallions Green onions scallions / - from about 3
  • 1 tsp Thyme Dried
  • 1 tsp Red Chili flakes


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
  • Add the cold butter to flour and using a pastry cutter or your fingers, work the butter into the flour until it looks like breadcrumbs. Slowly add milk and mix the ingredients until it forms dough.
  • Turn the dough out onto a flour sprinkled surface and knead for 1 minute.
  • Pat the dough into a rectangle that is about 1” thick. You can either cut out circles or other shapes, but I simply cut the dough into 8 equal rectangles.
  • Transfer onto a greased baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until the scones are golden.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.


These scones are very easy to put together and tastes great with a cup of soup.
