Cheesy Scones

Everyone is impressed by a good light and fluffy scone, especially a warm cheesy one fresh from the oven which is smoothered in melting butter.  Cheesy scones can be served with warm winter soups, for morning and afternoon tea,  placed in a picnic harper for guests going ashore for a remote beach lunch or used as part as pre-dinner drinks nibble topped with home-made tomato relish and basil leaf.

This cheesy scone recipe is fool proof and is a popular recipe all around the globe
