Cheese & Onion Scones

My Mom made these cheese & onion scones the other week and dropped off a couple at my house for me to try out.  She must have called three times asking what I thought of them before I finally went and tasted one – and now that I have – I should apologize for being so abrupt with her.  You were right Mom, these are SPECTACULAR!

So, this post is dedicated to my brilliant Mother, who knows a good recipe when she sees one.

Cheese & Onion scone

Cheese & Onion Scones

You will need:

  • 1 onion, chopped finely
  • 1 tbsp salted butter
  • 2 cups biscuit mix (Bisquik)
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I used medium, but old cheddar would give you a stronger flavour)
  • 1/2 tsp course black pepper
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used 2%)

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees fahrenheit (230 degrees celsius).

Microwave the onion and butter for approximately 2-3  minutes, or until the onion is soft and almost transparent.

Stir in biscuit mix, cheese and pepper and mix well.

Add in milk and mix just enough to make a soft dough.

On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough until everything is well combined then roll out into a large circle.  Your dough should be about 1/2″ or 1cm thick.

Use a pizza cutter or knife and slice into 8 portions.

Place slices on a non-stick cookie sheet and bake at 450 degrees fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned.

These cheese & onion scones are best served warm.

Look at the cheese running through it!  The onion and pepper flavour make this a savoury treat by itself, or serve it along side soup.

I’m a butter fanatic, so I slathered mine up, and let me tell you, I could eat all 8 by myself – Scrum-deli-ump-cious!

I’ve only had two scones that I remember – these from my Mom and an icing covered one from Starbucks – so I don’t have a great base of comparison for scones – but these cheese & onion scones are to die for.  Seriously, they are that good.

Make a batch and store in an airtight container – then when you want a savoury snack, microwave for about 15-20 seconds to re-warm them.

    I think I’ll try these to go with the Parmesan chicken I’m making for dinner. I LOVE scones and can’t wait to try these!
