      Great Easy Recipe. A little to much cayenne pepper for me but the rest of the Sangria party loved them. Thanks for a excellent easy recipe.

      Delicious! These were lovely and soft scones perfect for morning or afternoon tea. Served warm from the oven. The sharper cheese certainly makes an excellent flavour. I followed the recipe exactly without any need to add more fluid. My home economics teacher at school had taught me to mix the wet ingredients into the dry by using a butter knife – in cutting strokes- and only enough strokes to combine ingredients – this makes for a softer scone. Thanks for sharing!!!
