Spring onion and cheese scones

I got baking this week - first time in a very long time.  I am now getting bored with lunches and am looking for new savoury scones it is!

I had a good search around and combined several recipes and it seemed to work OK.

simple ingredients: self raising flour, butter, milk, egg and then cheese and spring onion.  Added flavourings such as mustard powder or paprika, but try without if you don't have any

This is what I used
225 gms Self Raising flour
75gms butter

- rub these together so that they resemble fine breadcrumbs, then add 6 finely chopped spring onions and half a teaspoonful of mustard powder (or try paprika, or just salt and pepper if you don't have any of that)

Then add 75gms of grated cheese

Mix together then add
1 beaten egg and top up this with milk to make up 125mls in total, save a tiny drop and brush this on the top of the scones before baking.

Lightly knead together.

Make into a 2.5 cms thick, I just gently flattened with hand.

Then use a round cutter to make 6 scones, or just cut this into 6 triangles, brush the tops with the reserved egg/milk mix
and bake for 12 minutes at 200c/400f/gas mark 7

or you could make into a round and mark it into 6 - and bake for slightly longer.
The craft forum is still 'there' and it would be lovely to have a chat with people on there about their crafty makes.

Cows, sheep, elephants and cats

Sunglasses cases with cats, sheep and elephants.

Made with 100% cotton fabric, with wadding to protect.  They will fit some phones, but maybe not the really large ones.

And continuing the animal theme I made some tissue pouches with these cute little cows!

Baby hats and new stands

Made these little stands from a couple of wooden candlesticks, and topped off with a plastic sundae dish.

I left these at Lordship Farm yesterday, along with some new Christmas items.
