Directions

Sift the flour (and baking power, if using) into a bowl.
Add the cream, cheese (reserving a tablespoon or so), herbs and soda water.
Stir to combine into a dough, adding a little more soda water or flour if required to get a soft dough.
Turn out onto a floured surface, gently pat out to 1 inch thickness and cut into 14 even pieces.
Sprinkle the tops wtih the reserved cheese (or brush with milk if preferred).
Bake 10-12 minutes at 220 degrees celcius.

Makes 14 scones of about 2 inches square once baked.

These are great straight from the oven but also freeze well.
