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.

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
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.
