#SundayStills and a paprika cheese scone recipe

You may ask what these two topics have in common and I’ll tell you lots, just read on…

Here is my amazing Man on the Moon. He is made almost entirely of cheese. I must be honest, I thought this was rather clever of me [smile].

Aeroplane party treats made from biscuits, royal icing, candy canes and a couple of sweets.

Here is my WWII spitfire made out of fondant.

Here is my biscuit rocket ship to the moon.

These pictures are shared for Terri Webster Schrandt Sunday Stills challenge which you can join in here: https://secondwindleisure.com/2020/07/12/sunday-stills-look-up-in-the-sky/

During the week I shared a picture of these delicious paprika cheese scones on Instagram. A few people asked for the recipe so I am sharing it today. As cheese clearly comes from the moon which is made from green cheese and guarded by the Man on the Moon, it fits in perfectly with Terri’s challenge.


450 grams self raising flour

115 grams softened butter, cubed

150 grams grated mature cheddar cheese,

5 ml salt

5 ml black pepper

1 egg

150 ml milk

10 ml paprika


Heat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius.

Sift the flour into a bowl and rub in the butter until it forms a crumb like mixture. Add 140 grams of the cheese, salt, pepper and paprika and mix. Lightly beat the milk and the egg and pour into the mixture. Knead until a soft dough forms.

Turn out onto a floured board and use your hands to shape into a circular shape approximately 1 cm thick. Cut into rounds using a cookie cutter. Place the rounds onto a prepared baking tray. Brush the top of the scones with milk and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

Bake for approximately 15 minutes until golden brown. Best served hot with a little butter.

  1. Dare I say your creations and scone recipe are out of this world, Robbie? Great take on the theme and thank you for sharing the scone recipe. I can’t believe the Man on the Moon is made of cheese, just like people believed the moon was made of cheese 🙂

  2. What a wonderful imagination you deploy to satisfy the tastes of the little ones and also the older ones. Really, your creation has no limits and your art manifests itself in everything you prepare. Sure, not to mention when it comes to your books.
    An excellent week for you. I loved reading you.

  3. This is so amazing, Robbie! Thank you for sharing your new experiences with cheese, as a great working material too. Seems you are preparing for extended catering too. 😉 Enjoy your weekend. Stay save with yours.
    Here we are listening to so many horror stories from all around the world. Only Germany is said to be something like “Heaven on Earth”. I am a little bit concerned about this. 😉 Michael

    1. Thank you, Michael. My country has the sixth highest number of infections in the world right now, but our death rate is fairly low, thank goodness. It is a scary time. I hope you are also safe. I think we are all going to get this virus sooner or later, but I would prefer not to have it now during its peak and during our winter.

      1. This with the low(er) death rate was not explicit mentioned here. Sometimes i think our fake news are produced by our own media stations. 😉 I agree with the thesis of herd immunity, and think Germany will get a very sad future.

      2. It is the only way, Michael, herd immunity. Otherwise we’ll all be locked up forever. I don’t know that much about what is happening in Germany. I have been tracking the US, Brazil and the UK mainly. I’ll look tomorrow when I check the stats.
