These are incredibly easy and tasty. They are actually the first scones I ever made and now I'm addicted. I first made them for a work event and they won rave reviews from even some of the harshest food critics in my office. I did make one slight modification; instead of using grated cheese, I use high-quality (somewhat thick) slices of extra sharp cheese from the deli counter and "chopped" them up into tiny squares. I primarily did this out of the necessity the first time I made them because it was the only cheese I had on hand but when they turned out so well, I permanently adopted the approach. I like getting slightly larger chunks of cheese in every bite as opposed to the shreds that kind of get lost in the mix.
This is a favorite of mine. I love them!
Great with soup! Very nice savory flavor.
