    These scones have everything you want in a cheese scone. They're light, fluffy and full of cheesy goodness. The trick is not to handle the dough too much and work very quickly. If you can do that, you'll be rewarded with a fantastic scone. Serve with lashings of butter for that indulgent treat. Perfect for picnics, afternoon tea or elevenses.

    Very quick tasty scones, not as dry as bought ones. My family love them so much, so I make these every second day, 2 or 3 batches of them and they are always eaten. Everyone says these are much better than bought scones. These ones are raisin scones.

    This is my go-to recipe when I feel like a quick savory treat. They taste best hot out of the oven slathered in butter!

    This recipe calls for currants, but I like to sometimes add a variety of dried fruits. A hearty but light scone that's perfect for tea time.

    Don't be put off by the mayonnaise - it gives the scones a lighter texture. These are so easy to make and a great beginner recipe. I put them into paper muffin cups as it's easier than rolling out and cutting them.

    These scones are very moreish and the teaspoon of mustard gives them a little extra bite. I make these scones with Mexicana cheese sometimes as it gives a great flavour, but normal Cheddar works fine. You can make these scones any size. I either use a round biscuit cutter, or for bigger scones I use a pint glass. Lovely served warm and with butter.

    These cheese scones are a firm favourite with my family, they're quick and easy to make and have an added ingredient to give them that little extra flavour for those who prefer a different take on the usual cheese scone.

    Served fresh from the oven while still slightly warm, scones are a traditional favourite, whether for tea-time, lunch or a quick snack. Here, mashed potato is added to the mixture, which makes these savoury scones wonderfully moist and improves their keeping qualities. It’s a great way of using up leftover potato.
