  • Sonia’s Cheese Scones and Raspberry Jam

    Cheese scones have been a tradition in my household forever. I would never miss setting the table on a weekend without adding a batch of hot cheese scones with raspberry jam. I love this recipe - the more cheese you add the yummier they are. I hope your family enjoys them as much as mine do.
