10 tasty cheese scones recipes. Scones do not have to be plain, depends on your taste and what you want to do with scones. I personally prefer to add some herbs like onion and garlic, salt and pepper. All these spiced up scones give them a different tang, making them very tasty to eat. Even pumpkin is used for the tasty scones. Try different cheeses, or mix them up and use ham or bacon or olives. Cheddar cheese will give them more color. I love cheese scones, especially when you can make them sugar free and gluten free. Good for diabetics.
