Books, Tea, and the Trinity: Dragon Cheddar and Tomato Scones

Back in 2020, some friends and I started a Tea Party/Bible Study/Book Club. We met every Wednesday and worked our way through the Chronicles of Narnia and are currently working through The Chronicles of Prydain. When we started I resolved to share all the recipes, but i couldn’t keep up and that’s why I’m two years behind. All recipes are now going to be titled Books, Tea, and the Trinity.

After we finished The Magician’s Nephew, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe; A Horse and His Boy, Prince Caspian, the next book was The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

Today we continued our discussion of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. We had Golden Tip Lapsang Souchang tea, Dragon Cheddar Scones, Roast Beef and Watercress Sandwiches, BLTs, Pizza Balls, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies.

This scone recipe comes from the Cookipedia


  • 2 Cups self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3.5 Tablespoons of Dragon salted butter (or regular butter if you can’t find the dragon brand)
  • 1 egg beaten & 3.4 fluid oz cup of milk mixed together
  • 8 tablespoons of Dragon mature Welsh cheddar cheese or other Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped sun-dried tomatoes in oil (drained weight)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning or mixed herbs
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 425° F
  2. Sieve the flour with baking powder into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Run in the butter until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  4. Sprinkle in herbs and black pepper, and stir in sun dried tomatoes and cheddar cheese
  5. Gradually add egg & milk mixture until you have a dough, if this seem too wet do not add all the liquid.
  6. Turn onto floured surface and knead until smooth.
  7. Flatten out to approx. 3cm deep and using a round cutter stamp out scones.
  8. Bake on a tray lightly dusted with flour for 12-15 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

These scones were delicious and eaten up so fast just like the recipe said.
