When I was a young girl and staying with my nan on the weekends she would often bake with me. I remember the feel of the oversized apron tied around my waist, folded in the middle so that it wouldn’t trip me up.
One of the staple things we would bake together was scones; plain, fruit or cheese, all these would be made with her big hands over my little ones.
So, when I was looking for a tasty bake to make with my boys then cheese scones were a favourite choice.
The recipe and method are straightforward and ideas for moulding together quickly for a warm and wholesome savory treat.
