Cheesy damper lunch box scones recipe

Rolling into the last term of the year, suffice to say, sandwiches have had their day at our place. These savoury scones are full of cheesy flavour and are perfect for mixing things up at lunchtime!

With that same damper-like taste from childhood, with all the soft doughy texture of a scone, these savoury delights are sure to be a hit with the kids. Eat them cold or warm and buttered (which frankly, is ridiculously delicious).

  • Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the butter and rub the flour and butter between your fingers until the mix resembles fine breadcrumbs.

  • Shape the dough into a round disc and divide into six portions. Roll each portion into a ball and place on the baking tray. Score the top of each ball with a knife.

  • Cook for 15 minutes until turning golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely – or do as I do, and sneak one with a healthy (ha!) layer of butter. Yum!
