Delicious cheese and chives scones served with lashings of salted butter and biltong.

What do I love about these scones?

Is it the crispy outer layer of cheese?
Is it the gooey cheese inside?
Or maybe the chives?

It’s definitely all 3! Whenever I make these scones for my family they are finished in a matter of minutes. My husband loves it with lashings of butter and biltong and my kids… well straight out the pan.
