Cheddar cheese scones are very easy to make. Using self-rising flour, these scones also call for a favorite hard cheese, such as sharp cheddar. The result is a delicious wedge-shaped biscuit that compliments a grilled steak dinner served with sautéed onion and corn on the cob. This recipe for cheese mustard scones makes 8 scones.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • light pinch of salt
  • 1/3 cup butter, chilled
  • 1 cup firm cheese of choice, grated
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 2/3 cup milk


  1. Preheat oven 425 degrees F. Grease baking sheet.

  2. In medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt.

  3. Slice chilled butter into pieces and work butter into dry mixture with fingers until the mixture looks like crumbs.

  4. Mix in grated cheese. On separate occasions, I’ve used grated sharp cheddar cheese and smoked Amish cheddar cheese, each with delicious results.

  5. Mix in mustard powder.

  6. Mix in enough milk to make a thick dough.

  7. Pat dough into a large circle, about 1 inch thick, on greased baking sheet.

  8. Cut circle into 8 wedges using a knife or pizza cutter and separate the wedges so that there is about 1 inch space surrounding each wedge.

  9. Bake scones at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

  10. Serve scones warm with butter.

The only problem I would have in making these scones is the lack of self-rising flour. Unlike many Southerners I do not use self-rising flour in cooking. I use all-purpose four instead. There are recipes for making your own self-rising flour, which should be available to people. After all, people do run out of things when stores are closed.
