Scone Recipes: Garlic Cheddar Cheese Scones

by Garlic Lover
(Garlic City)

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced, or 1/8-1/4 tsp garlic powder

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 12 cup muffin pan or a scone pan.

    In a mixing bowl, combine the flour with baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or knives until it looks like fine crumbs, then add the cheese, sour cream, and herbs. Stir just until blended. Spoon the dough into the muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.

    Melt some extra butter (about 2 TBS) and add some garlic if you want even more zip. Brush the hot scones with the garlic butter. (If you think the scones are garlicky enough, just brush with butter). Serve warm.
    Makes 12 scones.
