  1. In a bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In another bowl, combine the egg, milk, cheese and pesto. Stir into flour mixture just until moistened.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times. Transfer to a greased baking sheet. Pat into a 10-in. circle; cut into eight wedges but do not separate. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

Not the greatest. I would suggest ussing more cheddar and more pesto. I couldn't even taste the flavours. I doubt I'll make these again.

These taste amazing! My family loved them and they were gone in a day. I added more cheese and instead of pesto sauce, I used basil and a bit of oregano.

Not very tasty. I wouldn't suggest margarine for any scone recipe.

Add more cheese and pesto and they are great! Used them for dipping in beef stew and the leftovers for breakfast. Super easy!

Really good! I used buttermilk and they turned out great.
