OUTSTANDING SCONES!!! I made these for lunch today and was amazed at how tasty and special they were! They have a very fluffy, moist inside with a crunchy crust and the flavour is a perfect blend of all the spices and herbs added. I unfortunately didnt have any fresh herbs on hand, so I used dried, but the taste was still so yummy, that I picture them to be extraordinary with fresh ones. The perfect excuse to make them again soon! ;) I used whole spelt flour to make them even more healthy and I found the nuttier taste of the flour was a nice addition to the overall flavour. The cheddar on top melted into crispy-gooey goodness, which I luved! To make my dough workable I needed 12 tbs milk, but then it was very easy to handle and I ended up with 9 small scones from the full recipe. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us, bluemoon! Ill definitely make it again (maybe using a different cream cheese or a different herb combination).

I made these to have with meatloaf. They are really yummy. I really enjoyed these. I did not add the cayenne pepper as DH doesn't care for it. Very good, and easy to put together! Made for 1.2.3 Hits
These were good and easy, however next time I'll use less pepper or skip it all together - the resulting scones can vary in taste depending on the cheese used--I used one that was high in garlic, so mine tasted very garlicy. I don't have a 2-inch cookie cutter so I used a coffee cup, which is probably a bit bigger than the 2-inch diameter, so I got 6 scones, which was enough for the three of us. Thanks for sharing this quick and easy bread recipe.
