Mini Parmesan Scones

Recipe by  

"This was my first scone recipe and I have loved it ever since my mom taught me how to make it. It has a light cheese flavor which added to for you cheese lovers! It kind of reminds me of fast food biscuits, but with cheese and without the genetic engineering."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking sheet.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and cheese. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the butter, milk and water; stir gently to combine. Add water in small amounts until dough pulls together.
  3. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth and press out to 3/4 inch thickness. Cut dough into rounds with a floured 1 1/4 inch cookie or biscuit cutter. Place rounds on prepared tray and sprinkle lightly with cayenne pepper.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Handle scones gently until complete cool.

More like a mini-biscuit rather than a scone, but yummy none the less. I used all-purpose flour rather than self-rising, so I added 3 tsp of baking powder and 1 tsp of sea salt (for 2 cups of flour). So easy and so quick.

These were pretty good. Like other reviewers, I also added more parm and sprinkled some on top too. I was hoping for a fluffier version, but we really did enjoy these Karla.

Karla, great recipe! Thanks for sharing. I've made these several times and they always turn out light and fluffy. Tonight I made them with 2T finely minced chives, 1t garlic powder and 3T asiago cheese (along with the Parmesan you suggest). Yummy! This is a keeper!

Very easy to prepare. Definitely reminded me of fast food chains' breakfast biscuits. I didn't have self-rising flour on hand, so I did the trick of adding 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt per cup of all purpose flour. Ended up a little too salty, but still very good.

Wow!!!! These are darn good, they're great! It's such a simple recipe that I actually doubted it at first, but they are sooooo yummy and cheesey. I added more parmesan and some romano as well. These can also become herb cheese scones too. More people need to discover these!!!! Hello people????????

Use the same recipe but a little less liquid and make drop scones (like the previous reviewer also) – it’s less work. Self-rising flour was not on my shelf so I looked in a cookbook for another scone recipe – it required 2t. baking powder so that is what I used before looking at the previous reviews on this recipe. When I bake these again I’ll use 3t. baking powder and more parmesan. Sprinkling a bit of the cheese on top sounds like a good idea too. We thought the salt was just right but I used kosher salt and quality parmesan - don't know if that made the difference.

These ARE good. So cheesey and gooey. I added more cheese cause i'm an addict. They came out perfect and smelled so good while baking. I have never made a bread/scone recipe before and I'm so happy my first came out this great. Thank you Karla
