Weekend Cheese Scones

Cheese Scones 

When I owned cafes I used to make these cheese scones every day around 6.30 am so they were freshly baked out of the ven for our regular early-bird clients.  Most days they had disappeared by 11 am.

Enjoy the cheese crust and soft fluffy cheesy centre and serve with butter or vegemite (we lived in the antipodes too long and it’s vegemite all the way 🙂I suppose marmite would be just as good).

Best eaten straight out of the oven they are the ultimate weekend morning treat or brunch time indulgence.

Enjoy, love Laura ♡
