Cheddar Dill Scones
This was my first attempt at making scones and eating them! My impression of a scone is that its like a flat biscuit! They are firmer of course, but the overall bite is similar to a biscuit. I liked these, and surprisingly all of my kids and their friends did also. I served this with a ginormous pan of Broccoli Chicken Alfredo. The flavors were really great together. The best thing about this recipe is the DILL. I love some dill!
2-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese, use sharp
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley
1 TBSP. baking powder
4 tsp. dill weed
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. butter or margarine, room temperature
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 c. milk
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl. Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the eggs and milk just until the mixture is moistened. Turn out your dough onto a lightly flour surface and knead it until its smooth. Divide the dough in half; and roll each half into approx. an 8" circle. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. Place on a cookie sheet about a 1" apart. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Smear a little butter on top of them when they come out of the oven. Easy and delicious!
