Cheddar and Chive Scones
I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for quite some time now. It’s the first weekend in a while where I don’t have any family/friend commitments which means I finally have time to bake – Yay!!
Don’t get me wrong, I love my family and friends but sometimes it’s hard to find time to pursue my hobbies (such as baking) while spending time with them because I often have a hard time multitasking and even if I bake for them while they are there, I feel like I am neglecting them or not fully paying attention! I’d much rather bake first, then invite them over for some treats 🙂
Having not baked in a while, I picked up my newest cookbook (Bobbette & Belle) and decided to flip through it for some inspiration as to what to make. One of the recipes that caught my eye was the Cheddar & Chive scones because I’ve been growing my chive plant but haven’t had a chance to use it much. Plus I had leftover cheese from a few weekends ago I needed to use up so it was perfect.
This recipe was super simple and tasted good. If I were to remake this again, I”d definitely try to make it more savoury – perhaps add some more butter and salt? For the first attempt it wasn’t bad.
To make the scones, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a bowl. Stir in shredded cheddar cheese and chopped chives.
Stir in whipping cream until a sticky dough ball forms. Scoop the dough into 6 even balls onto a Silpat. Brush on egg wash and sprinkle on extra cheese.
Bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
That’s it! Hope you all had a great weekend 🙂
