Cheddar and Chive Scones

  • Author: Mavis Butterfield



3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup fresh chives, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar, grated
2 cups heavy cream


Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and set aside.

Combine dry ingredients {first 4} in a mixing bowl. Add in cheese and chives. Stir the mixture thoroughly to combine.

Slowly pour in the cream and mix with a fork until a sticky dough clump forms. Knead dough about 10 times and then press the ball onto a floured surface, pushing down until a circle about 8 inches is formed {the dough should be about 3/4 inch thick}.

Cut into 8 triangles. Place the triangles onto the prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Brush top with some cream and then bake about 20 minutes or until golden.
