Ingredients: makes 10 large scones

150gms Nortons Soft Cheese with Apricot
400gms plain flour
125gms granulated sugar
1 egg
150gms unsalted butter, diced
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 1/2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
120mls milk

In a bowl mix together the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Crumble in the Nortons Soft Cheese with Apricot and the butter, then blend together. In a separate bowl, combine the egg, vanilla and milk, then gently mix the dry and wet ingredients until the dough comes together – don’t overwork it. Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and fold it gently a couple of times. Roll out to about 2cm thick and cut into your preferred shapes. Arrange on a lightly greased baking tray and bake at 200oC for 15-18 minutes, until golden brown on top. Serve with apricot jam and whipped Nortons Dairy cream.
