Cheesy Scones/Sajtos Pogácsa

So Pogácsa is a "national dish" for Hungarians. Ask any Hungarian if they know what Pogácsa is? You will have an ohhhh, áhhhh I love them. That is all you need to know before making this. Pogácsa or Cheesy scones usually requires at least 1-2 hours rise time, but not this one...So you can make this even if you are in a hurry. I got this recipe from a Hungarian blogger (Kriszta konyhája). Enjoy.

Cheesy Scones/ Sajtos Pogácsa

400g flour
250g butter at room tempeature
2dl soured cream
30g yeast
150g grated smoked cheese
2 tsp salt

For the top
2 egg yolks
grated cheese

Preheat the oven to 180C. 
 Mix all ingredients in a bowl to form a dough. 
On a floured surface roll out the dough to 2cm thick and with a cookie cutter cut 3cm rounds.

Transfer them on a baking sheet, then apply the egg wash on top and add a pinch of grated cheese on top.
Bake it for 20-20 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

In the end I made this batch of Cheesy Scones and a batch of Crackling scones...this is how we went to pick up my mum and my sister from the airport (in case they are hungry:) Typical Hungarian attitude to guests:) By the way at the time when I made the picture the other batch of crackling scones was still in the oven.
