Savory Cheese and Leek Scones
I love scones. The minute I saw this recipe I knew this recipe was for me. This recipe has everything that is good in a scone. Heavy cream, shredded cheddar cheese, bacon, and lots of pepper. But the star of the show and one of our favorite products; Knorr.
Knorr Cream of Leek Soup
Savory cheese and leek scones are made with cream of leek soup by Knorr. I have used Knorr products in everything from dips to meatloaf to vegetables but never scones. Boy, have I been missing out! This recipe is wonderful! The scones turned out delicious. Perfect with a bowl soup, stew, chili or anything else your little heart desires. This recipe makes two dozen delectable scones. They freeze well also so you might want to make an extra batch.
- 1 package Knorr Cream of Leek Soup
- 1 cup water
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 4 1/2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled, optional
Combine Knorr cream of leek dry soup mix with water in a small saucepan with wire whisk.
