It’s hard to believe that Easter’s right around the corner. It’s weird how the exact date of Easter changes so much each year, kind of like the kids’ spring breaks every year. We haven’t finalized our celebration plans, but the not-so-little Littles still asked for an egg hunt.
We’ve definitely done egg hunts in deep snow in years past, but hopefully this won’t be one of those times. Snow or shine, the boys might just never outgrow their affinity for jelly beans. Even if it means I continue planting plastic eggs in tall grasses for boys taller than me, I’ll happily oblige.
And these really fluffy, tender, not-at-all-dry Savory Cheddar and Chives Scones…
How to make Perfect Savory Cheddar and Chive Scones
These may appear and sound like they’re hard to pull off, but scones are one of the easiest pastries to make. Once I got over my silly fear of making scones and I started making White Chocolate Raspberry Scones and Favorite Pumpkin Scones with Spice Glaze on the regular, I realized scones are just as easy as rolled cookies.
And once you’ve had sweet scones, it’s high time to enjoy savory cheese scones. The basic steps:
- Whisk together the dry ingredients, like you would with most baking
- Work in the cold butter with your fingers and get release all your stress into the dough
- Toss in the super sharp cheddar cheese and chives
- Mix together the wet ingredients; then add them to the dry ones
- Roll out the dough into shapes that suit your current mood
What’s the Difference Between a Biscuit and a Scone?
Both biscuits and scones contain similar ingredients such as flour, baking soda, and butter. If interested in some of the best fluffy biscuits, we’ve got you covered with Best Southern Buttermilk Biscuits.
Scones are generally a bit heartier and heavier, and they’re generally rolled out and cut into shapes. Scones generally also include more sugar, as in sweet scones like White Chocolate Berry Almond Scones and are served with jam or just by themselves for breakfast or afternoon snack.
Since these Cheddar and Chives Scones are savory, they’re more similar to biscuits, but are a bit denser in texture. We love these fluffy, tender, cheesy scones for brunch. They’re awesome next to a Bacon and Egg Breakfast Casserole and some fruit.
