- Heat the oven at 200 degrees, in a bowl place the flour, baking powder and the salt & pepper. Add the butter and rub with your fingertips until it forms large breadcrumbs.

- On a clean work surface, pour the mix and roll it to 2 cm thick using a (fluted) cutter.
- Place the scones on a baking tray, brush with the egg yolk, place some grated parmesan cheese and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until risen and golden brown.
