Minty buttermilk scones with cheese & bell pepper

Minty buttermilk scones with cheese & bell pepper

The origin of Scones is Scotland. It’s a single serving cake.  They are often lightly sweetened or savory. Here I have tried the savory one using Butter milk and cheese. Believe me it came out really wonderful, it looks great in photo but was equally delicious too.  It goes well as a tea time snack with hot sip of tea…..
