When I first starting making scones a few years back now already, was roughly around the same time I was bitten by the Pinterest bug. I searched high and low for scone recipes that looked good. Did I find the recipes!! The majority of the scone recipes I first made were on the sweeter side but as time went by  and the more scones I tried and therefore consumed, I started to really like savory scones as much as or not more than sweet. Don’t get me wrong, sweet scones are super but there is nothing better than dunking a savory scone into a steamy bowl of soup:)

Delicious served with soup or with butter:)

Course: Bread, Muffins/Scones
Cuisine: All-American
Keyword: cheese, herb and garlic goat cheese, scones
Servings: 6 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 large egg
  • 1 egg, for wash
  • 2 tablespoons milk or half and half, for wash
  1. Beat 1 egg and 2 tablespoons of milk (or half and half) well with a fork. Set aside.
  2. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. Combine 2 1/2 cups of the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the cheeses and toss gently with a fork until combined. Add the scallions and toss gently with a fork until combined.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Brush the tops and sides of the scones with the egg wash. 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.

    • 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
