Cheddar + Chive Scones

Cheddar and chive scones
My love of cooking started a while back, in high school to be exact!

I always new I loved to be in the kitchen, but after taking a Food and Nutrition class I knew with (A LOT!!) of  practice, it was something I could actually be good at!

I remember one day in class we made scones, they were so flaky and surprisingly delicious! I kept the recipe and tweaked it a bit over the years. They taste just as good today as they did back then. ( Dare I say even better!)

Cheddar and chive scones
When I make them I’m brought back to my highs school days every single time. It seems sooooo long ago and then I feel like an old lady, and promptly use these scones to eat my feelings…. lol!

  • 2 1/2 Cups flour
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Cup butter (cubed)
  • 3 eggs (2 for the dough, one for egg wash)
  • 2/3 Cup butter milk
  • 1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 Cup chopped chives or green onions

preheat oven to 375

  1. In a large bowl mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in your butter using a fork.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together your eggs and buttermilk. Add to your flour mixture, stirring until just combined.
  3. Stir in your cheddar and chives, dough will feel sticky.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, knead your dough lightly.
  5. Cut dough in half, and roll both halves into balls.
  6. Roll each ball into a circle 3/4 of an inch thick. Cut each circle into 4 triangles.
  7. Whisk your last egg, and brush on top of your cut dough.
  8. Place your scones on a greased baking sheet and let rest of 10 mins.
  9. Bake for 20 mins or until golden brown.

Serve warm with some butter, your favorite soup, stew or chowder!

Enjoy!
