Here at the Pantry we make our scones fresh daily, we do three flavours; plain, fruit, and cheddar & Dijon mustard. There is constant high demand for them so they are made several times a day. With the approach of Mothers Day we have thought up of several variations to our recipes.  Anybody can make these so why not treat your mother to a homemade scone this mothers day.

7. Using a large cutter cut out the scones try to keep the scones close as to not waste the mixture (over working the mix will hinder the final height of the scones)

They say that variety is the spice of life, so why not try a variant on this recipe, instead of mustard try adding chopped chives for and old-time classic or for an extra kick throw in some finely chopped garlic. Different cheeses will enhance the scones why not use goats cheese instead throw in some cranberries to sweeten the deal. the world is your oyster when it come to these scones experimenting can be interesting… What flavours will you discover
