Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl, and add a pinch of cayenne pepper.
Rub the butter into the flour till the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Mix in the grated cheese.
Add enough milk to the mixture to make an elastic dough.
Transfer on to a floured pastry board and roll out to 3/4 inch thickness.
Cut into rounds with a 2 inch plain cutter.
Brush the scones with milk and place on a greased baking tray.
Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
