Fondue Scones

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

Adapted from the October 17, 2009 issue of Family Circle Magazine. Submitted by a reader, Shelly Fisher, who created it after having Swiss fondue in Europe. I don't think the garlic works, so I have made it optional.

I've been wanting to make these for more than a week now but they were definitely worth the wait! I was making French Onion Soup and as I don't care for Swiss cheese I always swap it out for Gruyere. I needed white wine for the soup and by happy coincidence this recipe uses Gewurztraminer so I was able to make both items sharing the ingredients. I cut the recipe in half as there are just two of us, other than that I made as directed with just a pinch of garlic powder and was delighted with the result. Tender, flaky and oh so yummy! Thanks for sharing this recipe - I'll be making it regularly!
