    French Tart's Note:

    Great served fresh from the oven - split open and douse dangerously with butter.....naughty but very, VERY nice!! These also keep very well in an airtight tin or container and can be toasted next day or gently warmed through in a low oven. Ideal for freezing - will keep in freezer bags for up to 2 months. Great picnic fare - split them open and spread with garlic & chive soft cream cheese, (Boursin or Philadelphia type) or make cheese & ham scone sandwiches or even cucumber scone sandwiches!! The oats give them a great texture - I use fairly coarse porridge oats. This recipe is easily doubled for larger crowds or greedy people!!!

    Serves: 12



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 220C - gas 7.
    2. 2
      In a large roomy bowl rub softened butter into flour until they resemble breadcrumbs.
    3. 3
      Stir in oats & cheese, then add the milk - if it feels too dry, add a touch more milk.
    4. 4
      Bring it all together and make a soft dough.
    5. 5
      Lightly dust a surface with flour and roll out the dough until NO thinner than 2cm.
    6. 6
      Using a 4cm scone/cookie cutter firmly stamp out the rounds - do NOT twist as you stamp as it stops the scones from rising evenly!
    7. 7
      Re-roll all the trimings and stamp out some more rounds until the dough is finished.
    8. 8
      Place on a non-stick baking tray/sheet or one which has been lined with non-stick baking paper. Dust with a little more flour OR glaze with a little milk & add some extra grated cheese for the topping if desired.
    9. 9
      Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden.
    10. 10
      Cool on a wire rack - if you can manage it!
    11. 11
      Serve on their own or with Boursin soft cheese, Philadelphia cream cheese, sliced ham, cucumber, cress or just with BUTTER!
    12. 12
      Cheese variation for the topping is grated parmesan mixed with a little paprika or cayenne pepper.

      Wonderful flavour and texture! I used my heart shaped cutter cus Valentine's Day is next week and I am baking ahead for a tea party inspired by FT's Tea Time and Light Suppers Event thread. Put some in the freezer and used some to top a casserole we had for supper tonight instead of biscuits. Delicious and very flavourful!! I'd like to try them with regular flour and baking powder, they didn't raise as high as I thought they should and wonder if it might be the use of self raising flour, I say this cus I have never had a lot of luck with self raising flour in other recipes. Thanks for posting, I sure will be making these again, so easy to do.

      Very tasty scones, indeed!!! Karen, these are fabulous little bites of cheese and oat! They have a lovely scones texture (fluffy on the inside with a crisp interior) and the taste is just plain yummy! The oats go great together with the cheddar! Id luv to try these with some fresh or dried herbs added to the batter... I used whole grain flour to make these, so that my scones were a little denser and darker, but they were still fantastic! THANKS SO VERY MUCH for sharing this gem of a recipe with us! I cant wait to make it again! Made and reviewed for Ed'n8-Make My Recipe August 09.

      lovely and indeed very tasty :) I swapped out some ingredients to accommodate what was at hand and my diet style...was low on white flour so did a all-purpose /whole wheat mix (and this threw off the converting a bit more I'm sure)- used a soy block of cheese and soy margarine and rice milk so all of this probably messed with the chemistry of the original recipe but I think that it stayed true to the intention of the flavors...Love my results...did not rise as nicely as the photos of the other reviewers (so I just didn't show anyone the other pics and no one knew it {{lol}} :) ) bushed the tops with a mix of honey, S&P, and a bit of mix...and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast to play a parm. flavor... got a perfect "bakers dozen" so I ate one straight away (!!! YUM!!!)and served them for supper with a hearty chili...we loved the results!! _Thanks French Tart :) made for the "I Recommend Tag Game" and I do highly recommend this to others...(froze about 6 for next week- hope to pull them out individually when wanted)- I have not made a savory scone in a while and this is a great the oats!!! _Thanks again:)
