Cheese and Garlic Scones

If you're a fan of Red Lobster restaurants then you know what I'm talking about when I utter the words "Cheddar Bay Biscutis". They are the only reason we eat at Red Lobster!

I decided to try and make them at home, knowing I would have the toughest critic in Lady Sadie as they are her favourite thing in the world to eat. As she took her first bite and turned to me with a scone filled grin I knew I had hit the jackpot.

Unlike regular scones where you have to knead and gently cut out perfectly rounded scones, this savory version requires no kneading and no pastry cutters. Couldn't be easier!

Even you non-bakers out there could easily make this recipe...I promise.


Makes 12
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
5 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (buy the best quality you can afford)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 clove garlic, minced

Preheat oven to 230 degrees C. In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs (do not over mix!). Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture. Add the milk and cheddar cheese; stir to combine (again don't over mix!).

Drop spoonfuls of batter onto a greased baking sheet (I also use parchment paper for easier clean up). Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned.

While biscuits are baking mix melted butter and minced garlic. Brush garlic butter over hot baked biscuits and serve immediately. If you haven't gobbled them all up in one sitting you can re-heat in the microwave for a few seconds to warm them up.
