Mmm…..Cheese Scones

Have already done some baking yesterday (another Lemon Drizzle Traybake and a Scottish Ginger Cake), I wasn’t planning on baking again today, until I saw that the lovely Sarah, of Bluebirds and Daisies, mentioned that she was making scones, and I do love a scone!

I didn’t have any clotted cream in so I decided to make cheese scones instead.  I haven’t made scones for years, mainly because I don’t really care for sticking my hands in the mixture, but I was brave. 😉

I had a flick around on the internet and found this really easy Classic Cheese Scones recipe.  I liked that it had a good amount of cheese in it (some recipes seem to call for only a small amount of cheese, but I prefer a stronger flavour).  I found that I needed a bit more milk than the recipe states and, on this occasion, I omitted the cayenne pepper as I just wanted to test the basic recipe.

Well, what a great result!  They are a little flatter than I’d hoped for (I rolled the dough a bit too thin), but the flavour is great.  This is a quick and easy recipe which I will definitely be using again.  I plan to experiment with herbs and spices too.  Any suggestions? 🙂
