Ingredients:  
5 C self rising flour (make your own - 1 C flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt)
2 C of grated mature cheddar (Or other strong, hard cheese)

1 C cream
340 Ml can of lemon soda (Such as sprite)
1 tsp salt
1 egg, lightly beaten.

Directions:
Directions:
1) Preheat the oven to 350 F.
2) Add the self rising flour to a large bowl and add the cheese, herbs and salt. Give it a good mix by hand. Add the cream and lemon soda, and mix until well combined. (Don't overwork the dough)
3) Turn the dough onto a floured surface and work into a ball adding a bit more flour if necessary. Lightly flatted the dough with your hands to a thickness of about 3.5 cm (1.4 inches).
4) Using a round cookie cutter, cut out the scones and place on a baking tray lined with parchment or silicone baking mat. You can reform the "scraps" and make one more pass, but after that discard any leftover dough. Brush the tops with the beaten egg (Don't brush the sides) and bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown and risen.
5) Serve straight away with lashings of butter. (assume this means a lot of butter)
