I love a good scone. Sweet or savoury, they both are a favourite of mine. This one rides that fine line between savoury and sweet. I was pretty nervous combining these flavours, but ultimately was surprised how well it came out. Next time I think I'll increase the paprika, now that I know the flavour suits. I used an Irish cheddar (Dubliner) but any old cheddar will work.
We ended up eating ours with a tomato red pepper soup I made and the combination was striking. I've included the soup recipe below because the two together managed to be a match made in heaven. It's a very simple soup, but when combined with the scone it is company worthy. I have a feeling this will be my new go-to lunch for those occasions.
