How to Make Delicious Cheese and Herb Scones

These cheese and herb scones are a delightful savory treat that can be enjoyed as a snack, side dish,

or even a breakfast option. The step-by-step visual guide in the image makes the process

straightforward and easy to follow. Here’s a detailed recipe to recreate this scrumptious dish:



2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 cup grated cheese (cheddar or your preferred type)

1/2 cup fresh herbs (such as parsley, chives, or a mix)

1/4 cup melted butter

3/4 cup milk

1 large egg


Step 1: Prepare the Ingredients


Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.

Add Cheese and Herbs: Grate the cheese and finely chop the fresh herbs. Add them to the dry

ingredients and mix well.

Step 2: Combine Wet Ingredients


Melt Butter: Melt the butter and allow it to cool slightly.


Mix Milk and Egg: In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and egg. Gradually add the melted butter while whisking to combine.

Step 3: Make the Dough


Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture. Stir until a dough forms. The dough should be slightly sticky but manageable.

Knead the Dough: Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead gently until it comes together.

Step 4: Shape and Cut the Dough


Shape into a Disk: Shape the dough into a round disk about 1 inch thick.

Cut into Wedges: Using a knife or dough cutter, cut the disk into 8 equal wedges.

Step 5: Cook the Scones


Preheat the Pan: Preheat a non-stick skillet or frying pan over medium heat.

Cook the Scones: Place the wedges in the skillet, leaving a little space between each piece. Cook until

the bottom is golden brown, then flip and cook the other side until golden brown and cooked

through. This should take about 5-7 minutes per side.

Step 6: Serve and Enjoy


Cool Slightly: Remove the scones from the skillet and let them cool slightly on a wire rack.

Serve Warm: Serve the scones warm, optionally with a dollop of butter or a side of sour cream.

Tips for Perfect Scones


Don’t Overmix: Overmixing the dough can make the scones tough. Mix just until the ingredients are combined.

Fresh Herbs: Use fresh herbs for the best flavor. You can mix and match herbs according to your preference.

Cheese Variety: Experiment with different types of cheese to find your favorite combination.

These cheese and herb scones are perfect for any occasion and can be a great addition to your recipe repertoire. Enjoy baking and savoring these delicious treats!
