Garlic Cheddar Chive Scones Recipe | Little Spice Jar (1)Oh my gosh.

I did this thing this week. I hate when I do this thing.

This thing is like having a million and one tabs open in a browser and then accidentally hitting the ‘X’ button.

It’s been one of those weeks. You know the kind of week where you’re crawling, begging and pleading that it could be Friday, so that the most wonderful pair of days in the week could finally be here.

Okay, let’s be honest, it was a total d’oh moment. (Insert face palm here). But lets keep this between us?You’re thinking, but it’s only Tuesday, it couldn’t be that bad.

There are only a few things that can make this kind of bad, better – tons of dark chocolate and oodles of carbs. Do people even say ‘oodles’ anymore?

I think it’s safe to say that after all of that, a pick-me-up is necessary! Let’s talk the beautiful language of carbs and symphony of butter.

Let’s make cheddar chive scones


Cold butter is combined with flour, baking powder and soda, sugar, salt and some fresh cracked pepper. We’ll add in sour cream later to make them beautifully flakey and golden delicious.

Cold butter is broken down into the dry ingredients. I do this with a pastry cutter, though you could do use a potato masher or your hands. Don’t be afraid to get in there.

We’re going to add sour cream, an egg, and a couple of tablespoons of water. Then comes the good part, lots of chives and mountains of mild cheddar cheese. Once it starts to hold, we’re going to turn the mixture out onto a clean work surface.

Almost there. Just need to brush on a little egg wash and sprinkle with a little sea salt and some fresh cracked pepper. We’re minutes away from buttery bliss…

Garlic Cheddar Chive Scones Recipe | Little Spice Jar (8)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic (or more)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt + more for topping
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper + more for topping
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, cold cut into cubes
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons water, cold
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, cold
  • 1/4 cup chopped chive, fresh
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded fine
  • 1 egg lightly beaten for egg wash

Instructions

  1. Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside for later use.
  3. In a mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, fresh cracked black pepper, sugar, and granulated garlic. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or potato masher until butter breaks down into pea-sized pieces.
  4. In another bowl, combine egg, cold water, and sour cream. Beat lightly with a fork until just combined. Add to the flour mixture and stir until the dough is soft and begins to combine. Add the chive and cheddar cheese and dump mixture onto a clean surface to knead the dough. The dough should hold together in about 12-15 kneads.
  5. Roll or pat the dough out into 1-inch thickness. Cut into 2-inch rounds using a biscuit cutter. Continue to reshape and roll dough to create more biscuits with scraps.
  6. Place on prepared baking sheet, brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Bake for 16-20 minutes. Serve warm.

    These sound and look wonderful. Have you ever frozen them? If so, how do they hold up after they defrost?

      I can’t say that I have! Would love to hear how it goes if you try freezing them.

      I froze these for 30 minutes on a sheet pan before transferring to a ziplock and freezing overnight. I baked them as recommended from frozen. Great results, rose perfectly.

    These came out picture perfect! They were fairly easy. I would add little more salt and pepper than called for.

    Can you make this dough ahead of time (i.e. the night before) and then bake the next day? Thanks!

      Unfortunately, I can’t suggest making this the night before. The baking soda and powder would be activated once you add the wet ingredients and the scones won’t rise properly the next day.

    The directions were easy to follow. I would suggest increasing the amount of cheese, chives and garlic used in the recipe to give it more flavor.

    These are the best — cracked pepper on top perfect! I add extra cheese and chives, and double the recipe every time. Coworkers, friends, family love them!

    There is no sugar in the list of ingredients, whereas step 3 mentions to add sugar…(?)
