Caramelised Onion & Cheese Scones

  1. Finely chop onion and add to 50g butter in pan on medium heat. Once onion is sautéed add brown sugar and cook until caarmelised, approx 20-30 mins. Remove and lay out thinly on plate to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 220 degrees fan-forced, or 240 normal. Grease or line a baking tray or cake pan.
  3. Place flour, sugar and salt into food processor; process til looks like fine breadcrumbs.
  4. Using a round ended table knife stir in onion, cheese, milk and enough water to mix to a soft, sticky dough.
  5. Turn onto floured surface and knead quickly and lightly until just smooth. Use your hand to press out dough evenly to 2 cm thickness. Using a cutter (I use a metal measuring cup) cut dough into approx 5 cm rounds.
  6. Place rounds in pan or tray, brush with extra milk. Bake uncovered for about 15 minutes. Turn onto wire rack to cool.
