These cheese scones are a lovely twist on an English teatime treat.
Crispy, buttery, packed with cheese and with a slight hit of mustard.
This cheese scone recipe is so easy to make, you could be munching these down in as little as half an hour. Without the need for any sharp implements, cheese scones are the perfect recipe for getting the kids involved for a fun family activity!
We use extra strong mature cheddar for this recipe to make sure the flavour has a real impact as the milder flavoured cheeses often get lost during cooking. But this recipe is super versatile so feel free to mix it up by using other strong flavoured cheeses or a mix of your favourites for something a little different. We like to add a little freshly cracked black pepper, smoked paprika and mustard powder to the scones for a bit of an extra kick.
Delicious just on their own, warm from the oven with a little salted butter. Or split them and spread a little (or a lot) of something you love on them! Smoked Salmon and Creme Fraiche always works a treat and they are a brilliant vessel for a bit of cheese and chutney. Our personal favourite is our Chorizo Jam Recipe with a little whipped cream cheese and chives!
Whether you dress them up all fancy or eat them just as they are, these cheese scones are the perfect teatime snack.
