Delicious cheese and herb scones


Cheesy and Herby Scones Recipe

These cheesy and herby scones are a delicious savory treat that can be enjoyed as a snack, a side dish, or even a breakfast option. The visual guide provided in the picture makes the process easy to follow. Here is a summary to recreate this delicious dish:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup grated cheese (cheddar or your preferred variety)
  • 1/2 cup fresh herbs (such as parsley, chives, or a mix)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg


Step 1: Preparing the Ingredients

  1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Grate the cheese and finely chop the fresh herbs. Add them to the dry ingredients and mix well.

Step 2: Combining the Wet Ingredients

  1. Melt the butter and let it cool slightly.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the milk and egg. Gradually add the melted butter, whisking until well mixed.

Step 3: Making the Dough

  1. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture. Stir until a dough forms. The dough should be slightly sticky but manageable.
  2. Turn out the dough onto a floured surface and knead gently until it comes together.

Step 4: Shaping and Cooking the Scones

  1. Shape the dough into a round disk, about 1 inch thick.
  2. Using a knife or pastry cutter, cut the disk into 8 equal wedges.

Step 5: Baking the Scones

  1. Preheat a non-stick pan over medium heat.
  2. Place the wedges in the pan, leaving a little space between each piece. Cook until the bottom is golden brown, then flip and cook the other side until golden brown and cooked through. This should take about 5-7 minutes per side.

Step 6: Serving and Enjoying

  1. Remove the scones from the pan and allow them to cool slightly on a rack.
  2. Serve warm, either on their own or with a suitable accompaniment.

Tips for Perfect Scones:

  • Avoid overmixing the dough as it can make the scones tough. Mix just until the ingredients are combined.
  • Use fresh herbs for the best flavor. You can mix and match the herbs to your taste.
  • Experiment with different types of cheeses to find your favorite combination.

These cheesy and herby scones are perfect for any occasion and make a great addition to your recipe collection. Enjoy baking and savoring these delicious treats!
