    Lalaloula's Note:

    Plain cheese scones that are jazzed up a tad by the addition of some cayenne pepper. Great for a hearty brunch or served along side some soup. My sis and me just threw this together for breakkie some morning, so feel free to use other cheeses or spices according to what you have on hand.

    1. 1
      In a big bowl combine flour, soda, baking powder and cayenne pepper.
    2. 2
      Rub in the butter using your finger tips.
    3. 3
      Stir in the two cheeses.
    4. 4
      Add the yogurt and knead briefly until a soft (but not sticky) dough has formed. You might need a little more yogurt (or water) to reach the right consistency.
    5. 5
      Flatten dough and cut out scones of desired size. I use a 3 inch glass for cutting out the scones.
    6. 6
      Place on a paper-lined baking sheet and brush tops with some yogurt (if desired).
    7. 7
      Bake in the preheated oven at 200°C/400°F for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
    8. 8
      Enjoy! :).

      I'm big on scones, especially this time of year, & these are absolutely delicious! I'm usually hesitant about using the full amount of cayenne listed in any recipe, but used it all this time, relying on others of your recipes being so wonderful, & we weren't disappointed! Another great keeper of a recipe! Many thanks! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]

      this recipe was great. I used cheddar and mozzarella, I added a pinch of garlic powder and used 1/4 C margarine. These were moist and delicious and so easy. I will definitely be making these again...and again and again.

      Loula, you've done it again. This recipe is a real winner. Scrumptious dinner biscuits (scones) that would pair beautifully with anything from scrambled eggs to a big roast beef. Like Karen, I used the cheese I had in the house, Havarti and Mozzarella (go ahead and laugh, it turned out to be yummy, lol). It's also a very nice dough to work with. I'm sure that these will be appearing here again. :D
