Buttermilk Cheese Scones

Scones always taste better, in my opinion, when made with buttermilk.  This is my recipe tweaked over the years and they rise so well.  


450g plain flour
7.5ml in other words 1 and a half teaspoon of baking powder
75g salted butter
150g strong cheddar cheese 
1tspn of mustard 
284ml carton of buttermilk

Nutella cookies!!!

These are crunchy chocolate nutty yumminess! Here's how to make them...


100g sugar
100g butter
2 tablespoons nutella
300g flour
1 egg

Optional: Peanut butter


Pre-heat oven to 200 C or 180 C for fan ovens.

Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl.

Add the Nutella, stirring it in well.

Add the egg and beat into the mix until smooth.

Mix in half the flour and then add the rest of the flour.  Mix it in until you have a ball of cookie dough!

All you have to do now is lightly flour a clean surface, roll it out until it's about 5mm thick and find your favourite cookie cutters.

This made about 25 cookies for us.

Put in the oven for 10 minutes.  Leave to cool then enjoy.

Optional, but delicious: once cooled spread some peanut butter on one cookie and then sandwich it with another cookie.  It's scummy!
