Three Cheese Scones

These little cheesy pieces of bread heaven are perfect to serve with dinner or for breakfast with some butter. Three cheese scones are nice and soft in the middle and full of cheesy flavors.

These wonderful scones were made simply as a way to use up some leftover cheese. I actually didn’t plan on making them but it turned out to be a very happy idea. They are easy, cheesy and DELICIOUS!

They were gone really fast here. Mainly because you can use these scones throughout the day. For breakfast, you can have them with your coffee, with a little bit of butter. For lunch, they are perfect to use for slider sandwiches. You can just add some lunch meat,  mini burgers or just pile on some veggies. These scones are also perfect to serve at dinner times, as side bread.

I like to use flavorful cheeses when I cook, so I had a nice array of cheeses for using in these scones. I chose to use Monterrey Jack cheese, sharp cheddar cheese and Gouda cheese. I would strongly recommend using Asiago cheese too if you have some.

Three Cheese Scones
Serves: 16-18 scones
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 tbs baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ½ cup of cold butter
  • 2 cold eggs (whisked)
  • ½ cup of buttermilk
  • ½ cup freshly grated Gouda cheese
  • ¼ cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup of freshly grated Monterrey Jack Cheese (or Asiago)
  • 1 egg white + 2 tsp of water for eggwash
  • 2 tbs minced fresh dill weed for topping
  1. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into the bowl of an electric mixer.
  2. Chop the cold butter into small slices and add to the dry ingredients. Mix the dry ingredients and butter until it looks like coarse crumbs.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and buttermilk together. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture while mixing on low speed. Add the cheeses and keep mixing until just combined.
  4. Take the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough a few times (15-20 seconds), until smooth.
  5. Pat the dough into a circle that is about ½ inch thick.
  6. Preheat the oven to 400 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Using a round cookie cutter shape (about 2 inch size), cut out the scone circles. (Don't waste the remaining dough, reshape and cut out more scones.)
  8. Whisk the egg white and water for the eggwash. Brush the scones lightly and sprinkle with some dill weed.
  9. Bake for 12-14 minutes.

    These 3 cheese scones look wonderful- and honestly, don’t our best recipes come out of unintended combinations? Thanks for hosting the link party and for showing off these awesome little marvels. Deb@ Kneaded Creations

    I was going to make cornbread to go with the chili I have in the crock pot today, but those cheese scones look mighty inviting! I think I’ll make those instead. How can you go wrong with chili and cheese?

    I LOVE this recipe, and it would be perfect for my new link party. This link party is called ‘Required Ingredient Recipe Link Party’ and I’ll be holding it every Sunday, starting right now.

    The idea is to focus on a single ingredient each week and I’m starting off with cheese because everyone loves cheese!

    I’m planning to do a ton of promotion to get this link party off the ground, so any recipes you post should get lots of attention.

    Regardless of if you link up or not, I’m pinning this recipe! Yum!

    Hope to see you at the link party…

    Thanks for the yummy scones recipe. Made it today and it was delicious. All my kids couldn’t resist and ate it all!

    Hi, I have just made these but I am wondering should I use self raising flour or plain flour (they might be called different things in different parts of the world). They didn’t seem to rise as well as the ones in the picture (I used plain flour). They still smell delicious though :)

    • lyuba says

      Hi Rachael!
      I used all purpose flour for these not a self rising one. I’m surprised they didn’t rise well. Just to make sure, you use a tablespoon of baking powder, right? Not a teaspoon.
      Could there be altitude difference, do you live at high altitude?

    I made these the other day and I really wanted to love them, but they were WAY too salty. I used the 2 teaspoons called for, and I used unsalted butter. I might make them again, but with much less salt.

    • lyuba says

      Awe, I’m sorry that it was too much salt for you! Do try them again with less salt (may be just one teaspoon) and I hope you’ll like them!
