Wild Garlic and Cheddar Scones

I love wild garlic season, these scones used up the last of the wild garlic I got from Borough Market. I kinda forgot to add the garlic before the milk so that's why mine are kinda green in colour rather than just with the pretty flecks. They look quite funky though!!

Wild Garlic and Cheddar Scones (from Farmer's Girl Kitchen)
(Makes 6-8)

225g self-raising flour
1 level tsp baking powder
50g butter
100g finely grated cheddar cheese
30g wild garlic leaves, finely chopped
1 tsp dry mustard
salt and pepper
1 egg, beaten

Pre-heat the oven to 200C. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Mix the flour and baking powder and rub in the butter with your fingertips until it looks like breadcrumbs. Stir in the cheese and the finely chopped wild garlic leaves.

Add the egg to the flour mixture and then add enough milk to bring it together into a soft dough. Dust your work surface with flour and gently pat the dough into a round about 2 cm thick, cut out your scones.

Brush the tops of the scones with milk. Bake for 10-12 mins until the scones are golden brown. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
