I love cheese scones!  When I was a child in primary school in Guyana I use to buy cheese scones from a restaurant called Arapaima that was just down the street from my school.  Whenever I has to buy lunch I was head there to grab some of their hot pastries.  My favorites were the cheese scones and cheese rolls; can you tell that I am a cheese head!!  To this day I  still think of those scones so I make a version at home!

I’ve made it before with yellow cheddar cheese but today I made a version using white cheddar cheese and it is amazing.  These white cheddar cheese scones pack a punch from the aged cheddar and homemade pepper sauce!  Scroll down for the recipe and video!  If you haven’t already subscribed to my channel, head on over to do so!
