These scones are the latest ones I’ve tried and I used this recipe for my Afternoon Tea as I really liked them, they worked out well. They are quite simple to make and are moist in texture and tasty. I used cheddar in my previous batch but this time I only had red leicester but any cheese will do.
I think these are my go to scone recipe if I just want plain traditional cheese scones.

- 2oz - Grated cheddar (plus extra too top)
