Cheesy scones make an amazing afternoon tea, served with slices of apple and a glass of milk. They’re also the perfect accompaniment to soups at dinner time (this one in particular).

But the thing about scones is that they’re best enjoyed right from the oven. Sure they keep fine for a day or two, but they’re never quite as magical as when you eat them steaming and fresh.

So if you have a small family like ours, making a small batch is the answer. This recipe yields enough for six scones, which is perfect for two or three people to eat in one sitting.

These scones are quick, easy, and extremely satisfying. Just how I like all my food.
