“This was my first scone recipe and I have loved it ever since my mom taught me how to make it. It has a light cheese flavor which added to for you cheese lovers! It kind of reminds me of fast food biscuits, but with cheese and without the genetic engineering.” - by karla

- In a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and cheese. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the butter, milk and water; stir gently to combine. Add water in small amounts until dough pulls together.
