Baking Break: cheese scones for editing

After a long stretch of 90 degree days, it seems a cold front has returned to the Midwest. Goodbye, flip flops. So long, tank tops. See ya later, swimsuit. It’s time for hoodies and comfort food once again.

With an editing marathon planned for the weekend, I’m already craving carbs. And cheese. Savory, salty, comfort food is what I need to fuel through the to-dos this weekend.

If you’re in a similar boat and want to join me in a baking/editing marathon, here’s a simple and satisfying recipe I recommend:

Cheese Scones

12 ounces self raising flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 ounces butter
11 ounces strong grated cheese
6 ounces milk
1 dash pepper
2 teaspoons mustard powder

1 Sieve the flour and dry ingredients.
2 Mix in the butter.
3 Add grated cheese, mix well, then add milk in slowly.
4 Mix into a dough; pat with hand and then cut into shapes.
5 Bake in the oven at 450 degrees F until you see those lightly golden tops.
