{ Cheddar Scallion Scones }

 

I do not have enough scones in my life! This was my first attempt at a savory scone and they are delicious! Great to serve with soup or salad, or as a savory breakfast!

ingredients }

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (and more for the counter)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbs. baking powder
  • 6 Tbs. cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 scallions, cleaned, trimmed, and chopped (both white and green parts)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup , cream or sour cream
  • 1 heaping Tbs. whole grain mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp. hot sauce (I used Frank’s Buffalo Sauce)

{ directions }

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet, or line it with parchment.

  2. Mix flour, salt, and baking powder in stand mixer on level 1. Work in the butter with your fingers to make an unevenly crumbly mixture.

  3. Toss in the cheese and scallions and continue mixing on level 1.

  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, cream,  mustard and hot sauce. Add to the dry ingredients, stirring just until everything is evenly moistened. (the dough will be very sticky)

  5. Liberally flour the counter and your hands. Pat the dough into a 10″ x 2″ rectangle. For larger, flatter scones, pat into a 15″ x 3″ rectangle.

  6. Cut the rectangle into 5 squares, then cut each square in half diagonally, to make a total of 10 triangular scones.

  7. Place the scones on the prepared baking sheet, leaving at least 1″ between them and bake for 20 to 23 minutes, until they’re nicely browned. Remove from the oven, and serve warm or at room temperature.

  8. Enjoy! Yum!

Makes 10 scones. Dare you to eat just one!
