Great scones, BK, and right down my Texas wheelhouse alley. I halved your recipe (easy to do) and made it as written otherwise. DH and I both favor scones and I like to have them on-hand in my freezer - Which is exactly what I did with the majority of yield so I could have them for breakfast later this month when guests visit from Canada. Thx for posting this recipe and for helping me with my visitor menu-planning. Made for the Agents of Quest in the Culinary Quest event. :-)

Oh My Goodness, these are simply wonderful. I made 6 scones and they turned out wonderfully. In order to humor my diabetic self (it can be such a pain) I used Southwest flavor Eggbeaters, fat free coffee creamer for the cream and skim milk. I did use real med cheddar cheese. With no jalapeno in the house I added some of the sliced red and yellow peppers that you get an a jar. 10 mins was perfect at 475 Although I think I'll use an insulated pan next time. The bottom was not burned but it was a bit darker than I prefer. The flavor and texture are just outstanding and they are heaven to much with nothing else at all. No butter, no ham, just their wonderful selves :D. This one is a keeper BK !!

Yum! I made 1/3 of the recipe. I used slightly less cayenne and no jalapeno because I made it for breakfast and the kids aren't spicy eaters. :) I really liked this and it was super easy because I just formed it into a big circle, wetting my fingers a little to lightly press it out. Cooked this at 450F and cut into wedges after it was done. I would make this again! Made for Went to the Market. Thanks!
