Two Cheese Scones

I love the kind of recipes where you can throw everything into one bowl and end up with something delicious. There isn’t as much mess at the end and anything that involves less tidying up is a winner with me! That’s why I just love these easy two cheese scones.

Sometimes I wonder if the boys realise just how much tidying I do, it’s literally a full time job in this house and a live-in cleaner is the number one request on my “What I would do if I won the lottery” list. I find myself wishing that “cleaning fairies” really existed, or that I could lean out of the window and pull a sneaky “Cinderella” and get the local wildlife to do it for me, how great would that be!




Anyway, back to the recipe before I slip into another alternate universe! I wanted something fresh and quick to serve the family this week as a snack and this scone recipe is just perfect! Throw it all in a bowl, mix it, shape it and cook it! These will disappear quickly so be sure to hide one (or an extra batch!) for yourself!
