Preheat the oven to 220℃/200℃ fan/gas mark 7. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
Place the flour in a mixing bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the haloumi and mint.
Add the yogurt and mix to a soft dough.
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface to about 3-4cm thick and cut out eight 7cm scones, gathering up the dough and re-rolling as required. Place on the baking sheet.
Brush the tops with a little beaten egg or milk. Bake in the centre of the oven for 12–15 minutes until risen and golden.
Allow to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
