Method

  1. 1. Rub butter into flour until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  2. 2. Add milk, blue cheese and thyme and stir with a round bladed knife stir until mixture comes together. Turn onto a lightly floured bench and knead only until just smooth.
  3. 3. Pat out mixture until 2.5cm thick, measuring 16cm x 16cm and using a sharp knife, cut into 9 squares. Place on a paper lined tray, brush with extra milk and bake at 220oC for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown, and scones sound hollow when tapped. Remove from oven and wrap in a clean towel for 5-10 minutes.
  4. 4. Serve warm with caramelised onions and extra blue cheese.
