My ‘Go To’ Cheese Scones

I have made savoury scones in previous posts. The spicy cheese wholemeal scones and moist greek yoghurt scones

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.
