1.5 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. dry mustard
4 T. butter
3/4 c. shredded cheese (I used Mexican Blend)
6 spring onions, finely chopped
1 lge egg mixed with 4 T. milk
Preheat oven to 400*. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix together dry ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in butter until the mixture looks like fine bread crumbs. (I used my food processor and then transferred the mixture to a large bowl).
Stir in the cheese and chopped onion.
Add most of the egg and milk mixture, gradually, until you have a soft dough. I let my hands take over the mixing towards the end.
Turn onto a cutting board and pat into a round, approx. 1" thick. Cut into eighths and transfer to the baking sheet. Brush tops with remaining egg mixture.
Bake for 10-15 minutes, until risen and golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
