Easy Cheese and Garlic Scones

Easy Cheese and Garlic Scones

ANGG

"This is my favorite, very simple, recipe for savory scones. They are wonderful served hot, spread with a little butter, and eaten alongside a steamy hot soup. It's important not to over handle these scones, as they will be heavy and tough."

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together flour and salt. Rub in butter lightly with finger tips until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in cheese and garlic. Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour in the milk, reserving 1 teaspoon for a glazing the scones. Gently mix, just until combined.
  3. Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead briefly and lightly. Be careful not to overwork the dough. Press out dough to form a 1 inch thick round. Cut into 8 wedges. Place on prepared tray and brush with reserved milk.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 20 minutes, or until light brown. Serve hot or let cool on a wire rack.

This is a pretty good recipe, but it needed some tweaking. 2 tbps butter is WAY too little for scones--most recipes call for 6-8 tbps. I used 6. I also increased the cheese to 1 cup, and I used ...

Good! I used about 1/4 tsp of garlic pwdr instead of the clove. Also, didn't have self rising flour so I used reg. flour + 2 tsps. bkg pwdr and about a 1/4 tsp. more of salt. This is a very nice...

These were really really good. I used 1/2 whole wheat and half white flour, adding 1.5 tbsp baking powder per cup to make it self-rising. I subbed a romano and asiago blend for the cheese, and...

The whole family loved these. They said they tasted very much like the cheese biscuits that they so like at Red Lobster. I used a round biscuit cutter instead of pie wedges.

I make a very similar recipe with self-raising flour but use 4 tbls. of butter. I find that otherwise they are tough. Also use other herbs (basil, oregano, etc.). Hope this is useful to someo...

Very heavy

Very good - texture like a biscuit. Used Havarti instead of cheddar because that's what I had on hand.

I can't believe it, but I changed every ingredient in this recipe in some manner. I didn't have self-rising flour, so I used AP and added 2 tsp of baking powder. As per other reviewers, I used...
