Apple Cheddar Scones

6 Apr

Spring has already sprung and what a lovely Spring it is as the weather is warm and sunny. It’s Easter weekend and all the families are out celebrating Easter Festivities with their young children. As for me a quick and relaxing trip down to the states.
For this Easter, I decided to make something I had tried recently. An Apple Sharp Cheddar Scone. I first bought it at Thomas Haas Patiserrie and had liked ever since. I then indulged on these scones once again at Creme de la Creme, yummmm! Now its my turn to make it.

The key to making this scone is the sharp cheddar cheese used. Once you obtained some then its a go!!! Like most scone recipes, I combined the dry ingredients first and then the wet ingredients. Dry ingredients included flour, butter,sugar and baking powder. I first combined the flour and butter and made it into crumbs then added the sugar and baking powder. Next I added in the egg, milk, cheese and apple. The dough was then rested for 10 minutes and then rolled out.

Voila!!!!

Savory Walnut and Cheddar Cheese Scones

14 Sep

A local grocery store recently had a great and affordable sale on cheese. Ever the cheese hoard I was 😛 I decided to stock up on my favorite cheddar cheese. Cheese was so versatile, one could include it into almost any savory goodie. In light of the wonderful scone recipe I found on the net, I decided to incorporate cheese into the recipe. Mmmmm mmmmm…hot and soft scones with delicious cheddar cheese aroma raising from it. Add on melted butter or jam and I am in heaven. This time I added in some toasted walnuts to add a nutty flavour in addition to the cheese factor.

Buttermilk Cheddar and Chive Scones

17 Mar

In light of the recent baking of sweets, I decided to make something savory again as I did not want to go into sugar overload, hence I made some buttermilk scones.  I made some buttermilk cheddar and chive scones.  These were amongst a family favorite and devoured fast.  I tend to favour sharper cheddar cheeses as it had a stronger flavour.  With some extra chives I had also, I decided to add that into the scone batter for some extra flavour.

I first grated the cheddar cheese.  I next combined the flour and butter and hand mixed to a fine crumb like consistency.  This helped the scones become flakier.  Once that was complete, I added the remaining ingredients, such as cheese, salt, pepper, chopped chives and baking powder.  Last to come was the buttermilk as baking powder reacted quite fast when moist.  The biscuits were cut by a circular cutter, egged wash and baked at 350F for about 30 minutes.  It really depends on the thickeness of the biscuits thus use discretion on the cooking time of the scones.

3 cups all purpose flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

2 tsp black pepper

1 stick well chilled unsalted butter

1 1/2 heaping cups of grated cheddar cheese ( I prefer sharp cheddar) or you could mix w/ Parmesan

3/4 to 1 1/2 cup buttermilk

1 large egg

Opt- you could add in bacon ( saute in pan and drain oil first)

The result was good, it was light and definitely more cakier than biscuits.  Next time, I will add some sauteed onion, bacon into these scones for more savoury taste.  These scones made a good snack for breakfast.  Enjoy.
