      Irmgard, I must say you know your scones! These beauties are soooo yummy with a nice sweet savoury taste! The preparation was super easy and quick. The scones baked up beautifully in the stated time and made for a great breakkie! The only thing I did differently was to use spelt flour and a little less butter and milk than called for. I liked the play of salty and sweet, but if I was looking for a really hearty breakkie Id reduce the sugar by half to make the cheese come through even more. I made half the recipe ending up with 6 nice medium sized scones and 1 small. They were devoured! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your recipe with us! Made and reviewed for Farm Cooking with Andi of Longmeadow Farm An Event in The Photo Forum May 2010.

      Followed your recipe right on down & even included the full measure of cayenne pepper, which I don't usually do, & these are definitely great tasting scones ~ Loved the sharp cheddar & the buttermilk! Thanks for this great keeper of a recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend tag]
