      Add the grated cheese; mix just until blended.
    5. 5
      ~~(Or, in a large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Gradually cut butter in with a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture resembles small peas. Stir in cheese).

    7. 7
      Mix by hand just until the ingredients are incorporated.

      These were easy to make, and absolutely fabulous. They were the first thing to disappear from the breakfast table on Easter Sunday, and I have a feeling that I will be getting a lot of requests for them in the future. Thanks for the recipe, Peggy Lynn!

      Tasty scones! Good flavor and texture. I also needed most of the buttermilk, and I had to cook them a little longer than 20 minutes (could be my oven). Next time I would cut back a bit on the pepper, and the salt (that might be because I used salted butter). I might also try adding some herbs...dill, maybe?

      Oh my, how delicious the scones turned out! I followed the directions, using a thick-cut bacon, subbing diced sweet onion for the green onions (forgot to get), and reduced the pepper to 1 teaspoon b/c granddaughter was going to have breakfast with us. I needed all the liquid called for the dough to hold together. The scones smelled wonderful and tasted even better. The kids loved them and 2 yr old DGD did too. Definitely recommend this recipe for a savory treat! (Looking forward to leftovers tomorrow morning for breakfast!)
