Preparation

How to make Scones with smoked salmon and cream cheese

  • Preheat the oven to 220°C (200° fan) | 425F | gas 7.
  • Grease and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  • Stir together the flour, salt, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the butter and rub into the dry ingredients with your fingertips until the mixture resembles rough breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in the Cheddar and then the milk until you have a rough dough, adding more milk as needed to bring it together.
  • Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out to 2 cm | 0.75" thickness and cut out about 12 rounds with a round cookie cutter, approximately 4-5 cm | 1.75-2.25" thick.
  • Arrange on the lined tray.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes until golden and risen.
  • Remove to a wire rack to cool.

To serve

  • Cut the scones in half,  and spread with cream cheese, and top with smoked salmon, cucumber strips, and dill sprigs before serving.
