Cheese Scone Recipe

by Lee-Anne Neufeld

Scones! One of the breakfast greats. These cheese scones are our most popular scone here at the Celebrate, gluten free bakery. They are perfect on their lonesome with a little bit of butter or, a personal favourite of mine, is to dip them in a nice warm bowl of stew or chilli. However you like your scone, we are excited to share our recipe so that you can enjoy the delicious experience of having a fresh scone right out of your oven. 

If cheese scones aren’t for you, you can simply replace the cheese with whatever dry ingredient you like. Enjoy!
