Good For:


So-Fab Cheese Scones

  • 3 c flour
  • 1/3 c natural sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • ¾ c cold butter, cubed
  • 1 c plain kefir (milk will do it you don’t have kefir)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 c grated cheddar (or cheese of your choice)
  • 1/4 c green onions, chopped (optional)
  • 1 egg, beaten (optional) to eggwash the scone tops before baking
  • Sprinkle of garlic granules and rock salt on top of the scones before baking

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Pre-heat oven to 400° and line two baking sheets with parchment.

Whisk the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda together in a large bowl. Add the butter cubes and cut the butter into the dry ingredients to pea size with a pastry cutter or two knives. When that’s done, add the cheese (onions too, if you opt for them) and mix well.

Step 2

In a smaller bowl whisk the kefir (or milk) and egg together.

Gently add the kefir into the center of the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. I get it started with a large spoon and finish the job by rolling and gently folding the dough with my hands until it all comes together.

Step 3

Pull the dough in half and remove to a floured surface. Gently pat each piece into a ball and use the heal of your hand (or a rolling pin) to press the dough into circle with a thickness of about ¾”.

Cut the rounds into 6 – 8 wedges with and place them, well spaced, on the baking sheets. If you opt to apply an egg wash and sprinkle of garlic granules & rock salt, do it now, then pop the pans into the oven side by side and bake for about 15 – 16 minutes, until golden brown.

Step 4

When the scones are browned to perfection remove them to a rack to cool – but be sure to enjoy one slathered with butter while they are still warm!
