Cheese Scones

One bite of these cheese scones will convince you that good things really do come in small packages. These were simply easy and amazingly delish, they will go with any meal you pair them up with nicely.

2 3/4 C. Flour

2 Tbs. Sugar

2 Tsp. Baking Powder

1 Tsp. Salt

1/4 Tsp. Baking Soda

10 Tbs. Unsalted, cold, cubed butter

1 C. Shredded Cheddar Cheese

1/3 C.
Fresh Minced Chives

1 C. Buttermilk

2 Tbs.

1 Egg blended with 1 Tbs. Water

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or fork until pea-sized. Stir in cheese and chives then add the buttermilk and 2 Tbs. Water; knead gently just until blended. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and pat into a round circle and cut with a medium sized biscuit cutter. Arrange scones on a parchment lined baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Brush tops with egg-water mixture and bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Those scones look good! I like to add some fresh dill or chives, etc to my cheese scones/biscuits.

replace the cheddar with pepperjack and pile on the butter, and you've created my ultimate piece of bread. :)
