How to Make Cheddar Scones

These scones are super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients; all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Using a pastry cutter, cut cold butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in sharp cheddar cheese and parsley. Add the wet ingredients, buttermilk and water, and stir just until a dough forms Place the dough on a floured surface and pat it into a square. Cut the dough into squares. Cut the squares into triangle shapes. Place scones on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. In a separate small bowl, whisk together an egg and a tablespoon of water. Brush the egg wash over the tops of the scones and bake until golden brown.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • You can use any grated cheese that you prefer in this recipe.
    • Dubliner cheese, smoked gouda, and pepper jack cheese would be all be delicious!
  • If you don’t have a pastry cutter, you can use a fork to cut the butter into the flour.
    • I think the best way to incorporate the butter into the dry ingredients is to grate cold butter with a box grater. Freeze the butter for a few minutes and then grate it and it to the flour. It incorporates super easily.
  • To make homemade buttermilk, combine 1 cup of milk with 1 Tbsp of white vinegar or lemon juice. Let stand for 5 minutes or until the milk starts to curdle.
  • Feel free to add green onions, cracked black pepper, bacon, or zucchini to the dough.
  • You can cut the biscuits into any shape that you prefer using. Square, triangles, or large circles. You can use a sharp knife or biscuit cutter to cut the dough.
  • I gently pat the scone dough into a square with my hands. Feel free to use a rolling pin if you prefer.
  • Can scones be frozen? Yes! You can freeze the scones baked or unbaked.
    • To bake the scones after freezing, place them on a baking sheet and bake as directed. You may need to add a few minutes to the cooking time if baking from frozen.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.
