Cheshire Sheese Scones: Vegan Cheese Scones


For my trials of Cheshire Sheese, I altered this recipe from the British Cheese Board.  These vegan cheese scones are incredibly tasty, and make an excellent, savory teatime treat.  Any dairy-free cheese or Sheese, as the case may be, should work well in this baseline recipe.  On my next run, I will likely throw in a teaspoon or two of chives to jazz things up a bit.

Cheshire Sheese Scones: Vegan Cheese Scones
Serves: 8-10
  • 8 oz all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder or 1 teaspoon prepared English mustard
  • 2 oz butter alternative (I used Earth Balance Buttery Sticks)
  • 4 oz grated Cheshire “Sheese” (or cheese alternative of choice)
  • ½ cup of dairy-free milk beverage
  1. Sieve the flour, salt, baking powder, and mustard powder (if using) into a bowl.
  2. Rub in the butter alternative until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  3. Stir in the grated cheese.
  4. Stir in the milk alternative and prepared mustard (if using), to create a smooth dough. If the mixture won’t stay together, add a bit more milk alternative, one Tablespoon at a time, as needed.
  5. Knead the scone mixture lightly and roll out on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 1.5 inches (4-5cm). Cut into 2½ inch (6.5 cm) rounds. Alternately, you may roll the dough into a circle and into wedges (as shown in the picture).
  6. Bake at 425ºF (220ºC) for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the scones lightly brown.
