Easy Cheese Scones

I do love a cheese scone and these easy cheese scones really hit the spot. I often make a batch to eat with our favourite homemade soup - butternut squash and sweet potato!

They are great for picnics or even a savoury afternoon tea.

I always serve my cheese scones with pickle, apple slices and more cheese. 

I've used comté cheese in this recipe, which has a wonderful nutty flavour. However, any hard cheese would work well.


Comté Cheese

A BIT OF COMTÉ CHEESE HISTORY


Comté is a french cheese made from unpasteurised milk in the Franch-Comté region of southern France.

The region is home to over 2,500 family run farms dedicated to producing the highest quality raw milk that is required to make Comté cheese.

Today, Comté's methods of production are still based on the original co-operative approach and artisan traditions it was founded on over 1,000 years ago.

Each day it is lovingly crafted in 153 small village cheese dairies known as fruitieres. Often situated in the heart of the village, these dairies receive milk from farms within an 8 mile radius to guarantee freshness.

Due to its distinctive nature, cultural value and economic importance, in 1996 Comté was  awarded the exclusive Protected Origin Nomenclature which recognises it's reputation around Europe.

The unique nutty, peppery notes of Comté work so well in these savoury scones and complement the chutney and apple perfectly. .

    Make sure the butter is fridge cold before using.

    The recipe can easily be doubled if you are serving a crowd.

    The scones are best served warm but can be reheated in a low oven the next day.

    Cheese scones freeze really well, just place in a freezer bag or plastic tub to prevent freezer burn.
