Another winter warmer recipe from That Blind Woman, Julie Woods.

Not long after my younger son was born, a neighbour knocked on the front door with a plate of these cheese scones! They were delicious and I instantly had to ask her for the recipe, quickly transcribed it into braille and I’ve been making them ever since! That son, is about to celebrate his 21st birthday in a months’ time. Perhaps we should put these on the party menu!


  • 1 cup flour.
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder.
  • 25 grams cold grated butter.
  • 75 grams grated cheese.
  • Milk to mix.


  • Sift baking powder and flour.
  • Add grated cheese and butter.
  • Add milk to mix.
  • Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 200 C.

Tips: If you don’t have tasty cheese in the fridge, use regular mild or edam and add one tablespoon parmesan. (I keep a parmesan shaker in the fridge for exactly these situations)

  • If you’re worried about grating your fingers try and source a plastic grater! I got one a while ago from the dollar shop here in Dunedin. It is the best grater I’ve ever had!
  • Don’t worry about over cooking these scones! The crunchier the better! Your nose will tell you when they are done!
