BASIC PLAIN SCONES with Cheese, Pumpkin and Savoury variations

Taking my lead from the Great British Bake Off I feel I have to say –  “It’s Scone Week” as I’m going to post five different scone recipes.  Mum was a great scone maker so I wasn’t surprised to find this many recipes in her collection.  This first one is the basic mix and then Cheese, Pumpkin and Savoury variations.
