These were super easy and delicious. I definitely will use this recipe often. They puff up beautifully when baking. I made these to go with my Irish Stew. Everyone loved them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Cut butter in with a pastry blender or fork until pea-sized.
  3. Stir in cheddar and chives, then add buttermilk and 2 T water; knead gently just until blended. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and pat into an 8" square. Cut into 2" squares, then cut squares into triangles. Arrange scones on baking sheet, spacing 1" apart.
  4. Brush tops with egg-water mix and bake until golden, about 25 minutes.
