Cheesy Cheddar Scones

Stepping on the rocky top of England’s highest peak I felt only a slice of pride, after two-and-a-half-hours of climbing over rocks it was a bittersweet accomplishment with clear views and bright skies.

And then it was time for the descent and slowly, but surely, we made it back to sore thighs and whimpering up and down stairs the next day.

Spending the weekend in peaceful surroundings far from London was blissful and accomplishing the climb of Scafell Pike,  was a bonus. With legs that now feel like jelly, almost unable to hold me up from the climb, there are at least images as proof that we did it.

There’s something to be said about achieving something with your body and mind because without determination achievements wouldn’t happen very often.

Here are some of the images of the idyllic Lake District and the rocky scenery of the mountain.

Cheesy Scones were one of the things a close family friend used to make and her home always was a place of comfort. While us kids would run around the yard and enjoy her country home she would always have baked goods that I still think of fondly even now.

When she sadly passed away a few years ago I thought about these scones, one of the things she made better than anyone else I’d ever met. Her love and smile went into making and serving these and I always delighted to gobble them up so these are part inspired from memories and they are a simple little twist on these more traditional scones.

Note: Like most scones, these are best served the day of. Also, if you have some smoked cheese on hand, switching out a 1/2 cup with smoked cheese will add to the depth of flavor in the finished scones.
