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
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup cold butter
- 2 cold eggs whisked
- 1/2 cup low fat buttermilk
- 1/2 cup freshly grated Gouda cheese
- 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup freshly grated Monterrey Jack Cheese or Asiago
- 1 egg white + 2 tsp of water for eggwash
- 2 tbsp minced fresh dill weed for topping
- Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into the bowl of an electric mixer.
- 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.
- 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.
- Take the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough a few times (15-20 seconds), until smooth.
- Pat the dough into a circle that is about 1/2 inch thick.
- Preheat the oven to 400 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- 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.)
- Whisk the egg white and water for the eggwash. Brush the scones lightly and sprinkle with some dill weed.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes.
