    This is a savoury scone which gets a slight flavour kick from mustard and cayenne pepper. They are delicious on their own, buttered or with leftover roasted meats and salad.

    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.

    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.
