Cheese Scones

Cheese Scones created by Lalaloula

Found this recipe on the internet. It's a nice twist on the traditional English scone (see recipe #133633).

  • Add the milk and mix to make a smooth dough. (add more milk if necessary to ensure mix is not too dry) Knead very lightly for ten seconds on a lightly floured surface.
  • Roll or pat to about 3/4" thick (2 cm) and cut into individual scones.
  • Top each scone with a little additional cheese and bake for approximately 12 minutes. Brush the tops with melted butter after removing from the oven.

    Mmm, these are really, really tasty! They are lovely and soft on the inside with a crunchy, cheesy crust on top. The cheddar really comes through and makes for a really nice cheesy taste. I left out the sugar and used a little less milk than called for (added it little by little until the consistency was just right) and that way the dough was easy to work with and everything came together quickly. From making half the recipe I got 4 big round scones, which were gone faster than I could watch. :) THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this yummy recipe with us, Kellogs! Made and reviewed while virtually visiting Ireland in September 09.

    This makes tasty scones, but the recipe needed quite a bit of revision. I made half the recipe, using shredded sharp cheddar and thyme instead of oregano. The recipe does not indicate how much sugar to use, I added perhaps a teaspoonful. The dough was far too wet. I added 1/4 cup flour, perhaps should have added a bit more. I patted it out straight onto the parchment paper on a cookie sheet, and cut into six small wedges. No temperature is indicated, I baked in a 400 deg oven for about 20 minutes. We had these for breakfast and they were excellent with clotted cream and jam, and would be lovely with soup or stew.
