  4. Heat the oven 200c gas6. Sieve flour with mustard powder, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper
  5. Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Mix in the spring onions and the blue cheese.
  6. Make a well in the centre of the bowl, beat the egg with the milk and tip the mixture into the well and mix to form a soft dough, knead lightly.
  7. Roll out and cut into segments or rounds. Brush lightly with milk and top with a little Cote Hill blue cheese, if desired. Bake for 12-15 minutes until brown on top.
  8. Serve your scones warm with a strong brew, such as an Assam tea.
