- Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F) Fan.
- Add all the dry ingredients to a mixer and beat with the paddle attachment.
- Add the chilled butter. Beat until the mixture looks like coarse breadcrumbs.
- Add the cheese and herbs.
- When combined, add half of the buttermilk, slowly. When incorporated, add the remaining buttermilk, again, slowly.
- Continue beating with the paddle attachment, until an elastic, though slightly dry dough forms. Dry, but comes together like dough when you press on it, does not crumble.
- Transfer dough to a clean working space. Mold into a 25 cm circular shape. About 4 cm thick.
- Slice into 12 pieces (just like you would slice a pizza). Place pieces onto 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Brush some heavy cream over them. Sprinkle with some cheddar cheese.
- Bake for 15 minutes. Switch the baking sheets, placing the bottom one on to the top rack and the one on top onto the bottom rack. (This is done so that the scones bake evenly). Bake for another 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack for 10-20 minutes.
- Slice them horizontally and serve with some butter and cheddar cheese.
