Cheddar Scones

This is a great recipe if you’d like to replace cornbread with something a little lighter.  It’s easy and a great summer side.  Or fall side.  Or winter side. Or spring side. Yeah, that about covers it.


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tbsp sugar

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp salt

1/4 cup cold butter cut into pieces

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 large egg, beaten

2/3 cup half-and-half

1 tbsp melted butter


Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.  Cut in butter with a pastry blender until it is crumbly.  Stir in the cheese.  Stir egg and half-and-half together.  Slowly add the flour mixture until all is moist. Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface, knead 3-4 times, and gently roll into a ball. Shape dough into a 7 inch circle on an ungreased baking sheet. With a sharp knife cut into 6 wedges—but do not separate.

Bake at 400 degrees for 16-18 minutes or until golden.  Remove from oven and brush with melted butter.  Best served warm! 🙂 {But cold is good, too.  And lukewarm……}

Enjoy! And have a super weekend~

  2. Oops — did I miss something? How much baking powder? This recipe sounds wonderful but I’m afraid to guess on the rising ingredient. Oh, btw — just found your website and I love it. Thank you for great ideas!
