Savoury Cheese Scones

Saw this on My Kitchen's Snippets, I knew that I had to make them....savoury scones mmmmm it is good...light soft and fluffy ...taste really good.  Piggy Jo and myself really loves it.  Lots of fun together just making these delectable scones.  Life is hard and eat hard :) A must try scones.  Cheese packed with bits of chilli and spring onions in it.  A great combination of flavor !

easy to make and end result is satisfying

Jo loves making them...I helped and guided her along :)

just look at the grated cheese topping

The scones turned out great. The salty tang of cheddar went well with the fragrant herby aroma lacing every bite. Thanks Gertrude from such a great savoury scones.  Love it!

Savoury Cheese Scones - adapted from My Kitchen's Snippets

Ingredients :

2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
5 tbsp cold butter
1 red chili - finely chopped
2 tbsp of freshly chopped herbs (chives, rosemary,thyme or parsley)
1/3 cup milk
2 eggs
1 egg - beaten for brushing
Some sesame seeds or parmesan cheese - garnish

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Stir in cheese and mix well.
2. Rub cold butter into flour mixture until it resemble coarse breadcrumbs. Add in chili and herbs. Beat 2 eggs with milk and add to flour mixture to form dough. Dough should be wet but not too sticky.
3. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; knead just until dough comes together. Pat out dough to 1-inch-thick round. Using 2 1/2-inch-diameter cutter, cut out scones. Gather dough scraps and repeat. Transfer to prepared sheet.
4. Whisk the 1 egg in small bowl and brush over scones. Sprinkle with sesame seeds or parmesan cheese.
5. Bake scones until golden brown. Cool scones on sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to basket. Serve warm.
