Parmesan Cheese Scones

Perfect for lunch, a festive spread or as part of a savoury afternoon tea, a warm plate of fresh cheese scones are always a welcome addition. This scone recipe in particular premium twist with a hint of festive cheer in the form of luxury Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano infused butter and sweet and tangy cranberry sauce.

One of the world’s oldest and richest cheeses, its no surprise this PDO cheese is often referred to as the King of Cheeses. A hard Italian cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano, sometimes referred to in the UK as parmesan cheese, is still produced today as it was nine centuries ago. With a very special make-up and recipe, the product is only be allowed to be made in particular areas of Italy, with specially selected dairies and producers of the highest quality. This makes it a real treat all year round, but especially in the festive season when it's time to indulge in some delicious cheese.

In fact, I've teamed with Parmigiano Reggiano to host a special Christmas hamper giveaway. Scroll down to read the recipe and how you could win...


Shopping list.

Makes around 16 small Parmesan scones
♥ 200g self raising flour
♥ 50g unsalted butter
♥ 100ml semi skimmed milk
♥ 30g Parmigiano Reggiano, finely grated, plus extra for on top

For the Parmesan butter topping
♥ 20g good quality unsalted butter
♥ 20g Parmigiano Reggiano, finely grated
♥ Plus cranberry sauce to garnish


Step one. Crumble the butter and flour together until combined.

Step two. Slowly add the milk and form into a ball.

Step three. Lastly add the cheese and form together in a ball.

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C.

Step four. On a floured surface, roll out your dough and cut small rounds. Lay them on a lined or non stick baking cheese.

Step five. Scatter with more grated Parmigiano Reggiano and bake for 15 minutes.

Step six. Meanwhile, make the butter by blended the two ingredients, forming into a block and putting back in the fridge. It's important to use unsalted butter as the beautiful salty taste of the Parmigiano Reggiano will add this.

When the scones are ready, serve up with the butter and cranberry sauce. Delicious!

  33. I use it to season so many dishes as well as cook with it. It's great with creme fraiche for gratinating chard (which I would never eat on it's own) and I always love a griddled vegetable salad tossed with leaves and topped with shavings of parmesan. Or adding to breadcrumbs and making parmesan chicken nuggets which are so much more tasty than the regular variety.
