Ingredients:

1lb self-raising flour

4 oz. margarine

1 teaspoon of baking powder

8 oz. cheese (Cheddar is good for this.)

1 teaspoon mustard

Salt and pepper

Milk to form a firm dough


Method:

Put the flour, mustard, baking powder, salt and pepper into a large mixing bowl.

Rub in the margarine to make a fine breadcrumb texture.

Grate and add cheese, mix thoroughly.

Add the milk a little at a time to make a firm but soft dough, don’t make it too wet.

Turn out onto a lightly floured board and roll out thickly (about half an inch to three-quarters of an inch thick).

Cut out using a small cutter and place on a baking tray.

Brush with egg and milk mixture.

Bake at 160 degrees C for about 15-20 minutes or till they are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.

Put on a cooling wire and leave to cool, (if you can!).
Best eaten warm with lashings of butter………………..yummmmmmmmmmm!
