I love cheese and I love a good scone. Especially at tea time.

This particular recipe is a favourite of mine as it combines to of my favourite things to eat and is very simple make as there is no butter to cut in.

I like to make this using a smaller than normal cookie cutter as I usually make them along with other goodies for tea time or put a couple in my packed lunch to nibble on in the morning at work, after warming in the microwave for a few seconds.
