I know a lot of you have been wanting a savory scone recipe (I know in some places like America, scones are called biscuits).
The secret to amazing, easy, cheese scones
The key is enough cheese! I used 1 and 1/2 packed cups of cheese. You want to pack the grated cheese in the cups so you have enough cheese.
Also the herbs. You want to add in the herbs whether they’re mixed herbs, Italian herbs, etc. Some for of dried herbs really take the flavour to the next level!
The secret to really good scones
The key with this scone recipe is to not work the dough. You more you work the dough, the tougher and tighter the scone. If you want denser scones then work the dough for two minutes but if you want light and fluffy scones, don’t work the dough at all.
You want to mix the wet and dry ingredients until just combined (the dough with be very sticky and wet) and then blob them straight onto a baking tray. They end up more rustic looking but I like them like that!
