  • To make a dairy free version use odourless coconut oil in place of butter (weight for weight), and soya yoghurt
  • Vary your herbs and fruit or add a little blue cheese or strong cheddar for a more robust flavour
  • These freeze really well when baked, so prepare ahead of time and gently warm in the oven before serving.
  • Make miniature scones and use for savoury canapés: top with Crème fraiche + smoked salmon, or soft goats cheese + onion marmalade, or ricotta and olive tapenade etc….
