This recipe is strange, but it could also be because I didn’t get some of the steps right. Anyway, the scones turned out more like biscuits, and with biscuits you could make sandwiches as well. Just that these biscuits are more crumbly, drier and very small.
I love my scones savoury. I love cheesy scones and as such, I decided to buy some smoked salmon slices to accompany these scones. The walnut might get in the way though, and if that bothers you as well, just remove them from the recipe below.
These mini scones are nice to bite into by themselves without being made into reluctant sandwiches too. Kind of like buttery, cheesy biscuits.
