Preheat the oven to 350°F or 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper
Sift Flour, Salt, Black Pepper, and Baking Powder in a bowl. You can sift twice so that everything is mixed well and there are no lumps left.
Add the Cold Butter Cubes and mix it with your hands until you get breadcrumbs like texture. Do not overmix and melt the butter. Mix just enough so that you get the breadcrumbs.
Next add the shredded Mozzarella Cheese and mix it with your hands. Do not over mix.
Next, add Rosemary and mix it with the flour.
Make a well in the center and pour the milk. Do not add all the milk at once. Add Milk as per your requirement to make a smooth and soft dough. Do not over-knead the dough
Flour the rolling surface and Roll the Dough out to 2-inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut out small circles (7-8 cm Diameter) and place it on a lined baking tray. Top the scones with some more shredded Mozzarella Cheese and Rosemary.
Put the baking tray in the freezer for 5-10 minutes. Get them out and brush Milk or Eggwash over them. Pop the baking tray in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until you get a golden-brown crust on top.
It is very important to glaze the Scones with Milk or Egg Wash. This will ensure that you have a golden-brown crust over your scones.
Herbs are a personal addition to your Cheese Scones. You can add any herbs you love to this scone.
It's important to chill the Scones before you pop them into the hot oven. If you are chilling it in the freezer do it for just 4-5 minutes. If you are putting it in the refrigerator, then you should allow it to stay there for at least 15 minutes.
Also, the Milk, Cheese, and Butter you are using should be chilled. It might happen that you keep the ingredients ready and while you knead the dough, the Butter or the Cheese or Milk, come down to room temperature. So, consider, keeping them in the fridge and using them only when you need them. This will ensure that your Scones ae crusty and flaky.
