Savory Herb Goat Cheese, Cheddar and Scallion Scones

  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces herb goat cheese, room temperature
  • 4 ounces shredded white cheddar cheese
  • 4 scallions green and white parts, chopped
  • 1 cup whole milk or half and half
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk or half and half
Cooking Directions
  1. Beat 1 egg and 2 tablespoons of milk (or half and half) well with a fork.
  2. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. Combine 2 1/2 cups of the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
  4. Add the cheeses and toss gently with a fork until combined.
  5. Add the scallions and toss gently with a fork until combined.
  6. Beat the milk (or half and half) with the egg and gently fold it into the dry ingredients, mixing lightly until a soft dough forms. Add up to 1/2 cup additional flour, if the dough is too sticky.
  7. On a floured surface, gently pat the dough into a circle approximately 1-inch thick (or into two smaller circles for 12 scones) The key to tender scones is to handle the dough as little as possible and with a light touch. Cut the circle(s)into 8 or 12 wedges and place them on a heavy duty baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  8. Brush the tops and sides of the scones with the egg glaze if desired, and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or cool completely and refrigerate or freeze in a heavy zipper bag or airtight container.

  1. These scones look absolutely delicious! They would disappear in a NY minute!

  2. Why no butter in the recipe? Good scones require butter to make them tender and flakey.

    1. You are so right!
      Scones do need butter to make them tender and
      flaky. Most if not all scone recipes that I have ever
      made have butter in the recipe.
      This recipe has cheese in the recipe which makes the
      scones light. The recipe is from Farmgirl Fare and I don't
      really know why there isn't any butter in the recipe but they are
      delicious! Lynn
