Cheddar + hot pepper scones

This is only my third time making scones. They seem to be some of the most finicky baked goods to make, at least for me, so I generally tend to avoid them. Having way too much cheese in my fridge, however, meant that I had to take action. Cheddar scone action.

Thankfully I found a simple recipe from one of my favourite blogs: smitten kitchen

Here’s what you’ll need: scones

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbs baking powder
1 tsp salt
8 tbs cold butter, cubed
1/2 cup cream (I used 18% table cream)
3 eggs
1 cup old cheddar, cubed
1+ hot pepper, minced

Directions

Check out the instructions on smitten kitchen. I followed them to a T, and cooked the scones for ~20 minutes. I also used a glass to make round scones, because I find the triangle ones don’t cook quite as evenly.

They turned out quite well. I’d definitely try the recipe again, definitely adding more hot pepper (only used one), and maybe adding basil and / or green onion.

Enjoy ❤
