    Our friend Dennis gave us this recipe, we had it at his house a few times. His mother would make scones like this because she didn't like the waste when u use a cookie cutter. Points 3.

      Mmm, these are really yummy!!! The texture is perfect: a soft and flaky inside paired with a crunchy crust. The basil and cheese go very well together and add a mediterranian flavour. What a tasty twist on your traditional scones recipe! :) I made half the recipe and ended up with 4 wedges. Too late I realised that I was nearly out of white flour, so I subbed whole wheat for part of the ap flour, which made for a nutty taste. Yum! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this great recipe with us, Dancer^!
