Signature Cheese Scones Recipe

of servings

15 minutes

12-15 minutes

The quintessential British snack, our recipe repertoire wouldn't be complete without our signature cheese scones. We've combined our classic Mature Clothbound Cheddar with our very own take on Red Leicester - our Quicke's Devonshire Red.  But this recipe works with any of our cheeses, it's a great way to use up any left over bits of cheese you have (if such a thing exists?).

Spread with a thick helping of Quicke's Cows' Whey Butter and a dollop of chutney; the perfect choice for a savoury, summery afternoon tea. 


  • 680g (24oz) plain flour
  • 170g (6oz) Quicke's Cows' Whey Butter
  • 285g (10oz) Quicke's Mature Clothbound Cheddar, grated
  • 340g (12floz) milk
  • 75g (3oz) Quicke's Devonshire Red Clothbound Cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Heat the over to 220C/425F/Gas Mark 7. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Mix together the flour and salt and rub in the Quicke's Cows' Whey Butter.
  3. Stir in Quicke's Mature Cheddar and then the milk to form a soft dough.
  4. Turn on to a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Pat out to a round 2cm/3/4in thick. Use 5cm/2in cutter to stamp out rounds and place on the baking sheet. Lightly knead together the rest of the dough and stamp out more scones to use it all up.
  5. Brush the tops of the scones with a little milk and top with Quicke's Devonshire Red Cheese. Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden. Cool on a wire rack. Spread thickly with Quicke's Cow's Whey Butter and a good dollop of chutney.
