    Tasty Flavoured Tomato Butter - Liberally Spread on the Best Cheese Scones - Divine

    Now Here’s A Thing.
    Seriously, I thought there was nothing finer than a good cheese scone.
    BUT I have discovered an embellishment.
    Tomato and Parsley Butter
    Now these are really the Best Cheese Scone

    Friends were coming over for Afternoon Tea, well actually and Afternoon Wine
    Of course I must make food
    So I whipped up a batch of Cheese Scones,
    Normally I would just supply some good butter to spread on them
    This time I decided to flavour the butter

    Take 150 gms of Unsalted Butter at room temperature
    4 Cherry Tomatoes, very finely chopped
    2 tablespoons of chopped Parsley
    Sea Salt and freshly Ground Black Pepper

    Mash the butter
    Add the tomatoes and parley
    Season to taste with S & P

    Spread liberally on the freshly baked scone
    Seemed to go well, with the Champagne and also Chardonnay
    Covers all bases
    Just in case, people cant be bothered looking up how to make the scones… I have added the recipe for the scones from a previous post
    So Pre-heat oven to 220C

    1 cup of plain high grade flour
    2 1/2  teaspoons of baking powder
    Pinch of salt
    Good pinch of Cayenne Pepper
    1 cup grated tasty cheese
    2 spring onions finely chopped
    1/2 cup milk
    Sift the dry ingredient into a big bowl
    Add cheese, stir

    Add spring onions 
    Add milk
    Quickly mix and turn onto lightly floured bench
    Pat into a circle
    Cut into wedges
    Place on a lined baking sheet (you could just flour it if you wish)
    Bake for 8-10 minutes
    Break open and put a nice pat of butter on top
