Recipes to share – Savoury Scones

These little savoury morsels are the kind of eats that you can definitely not have just one of. They are easy to make and are perfect as a savoury eat at a tea party or just as a light lunch at home. I make them into little individual scones but it would work just as well if you press the dough out as one and bake as a savoury tart. The recipe also double or triples with the same great result.

While they are baking make the sauce.
