Throw away any hesitations that you may have about this weird mix of ingredients, these scones were absolutely delicious! I’m not a big fan of cheese but the the taste was just right for me and the cranberries are a really nice mix with the cheesy taste.
The recipe is really simple so these are perfect idea for a fancy yet delicious nibble. I was disappointed when we got to the last two and had to mathematically share them out between the family to keep the peace! I found this recipe on Colonial cravings, go check out her blog, it’s awesome!

Ingredients, for about six decently sized scones
- 225 g self-raising flower
- A pinch of salt and pepper
- (I omitted the optional ½ tbsp of mustard powder)
- 50 g butter
85 g100 g blue Stilton (plus a bit more to crumble on top of the scones) 100 g80 g dried cranberries
- 1 egg
- Some milk
ATTENTION: I’m about to give you a simplified version of the recipe because I used a mixer to make the dough rather than doing it by hand. If you want the instructions for doing it by hand, go to the original recipe.
- Pre-heat your oven to 200°C
- In your mixer, combine the flour, salt and pepper and diced butter.
- Add the Stilton, the cranberries and the egg.
- If your mix is still more of a breadcrumb texture than a dough texture, which mine was, add some milk until it’s sticky enough to form a round ball of dough.
- Pat the dough out onto a floured surface, about 1″ thick. Use a round cutter to stamp out the scones and place them onto a baking tray.
- Brush the tops with a little milk and then sprinkle any left over Stilton crumbs on top.
- Bake them for 10-15 minutes
Enjoy! They’re best eaten warm, straight from the oven ☺️
