These take less than 30 minutes start to finish. Preheat oven to 425F.
1 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
cut in 1/4 cup butter with pastry cutter
2 tbsp sugar
1/3 cup milk
Use a fork to mix milk into dough.
1/4 cup grated cheddar
Oddly, less cheese tastes better than more because more cheese has more water and the cheese steams instead of dry roasting. Gather the dough into a ball. Don't kneed it like bread or it will become tough. Just keep pressing it into a ball till the moisture has permeated all the flour and it holds together. Press it into a disk an inch or so thick and about 6 inches across. Cut into six wedges and place onto a parchment covered baking sheet, bake 12 minutes.
