Cheddar, Olive and Pesto Scones


I made these for my two daughters lunch today. They are both getting picky with what they eat but, as long as there is olives somewhere in the mix, they'll eat anything. Today they were even looking for more which I must say was a bonus!
Ingredients for 5 Scones:
225g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
10g caster sugar
40g soft butter
50g sliced black olives
50g strong white cheddar
1 tbsp. pesto
1 lg egg
100ml milk
Preheat the oven to 430F. Sieve the flour and baking powder. Stir in the sugar. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the sugar, olives and cheddar. whisk the milk, egg and pesto together. Combine with the flour mixture to form a soft dough. Roll on a lightly floured surface, cut out the scones and place on a lined tray. Brush the scone tops with a beaten egg (mixed with a couple of desert spoons of  milk) then bake for 15 minutes or until the tops are golden. Cool on a wire rack and serve still warm with butter. :op
