British Cheddar and Rosemary Scones


These British Cheddar and Rosemary Scones are one of my favorite tastes of home. They are really easy to make and I adore the subtle combination of sweet and savory in this recipe. Cheddar cheese, rosemary, butter and jam isn’t a mix you imagine very often, but it tastes really great when put together in this recipe.

Start by combining dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix well to form a dough ball. Roll the dough between two sheets of parchment paper until ½ an inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out scones until no dough remains. Brush with melted butter and cook in a preheated oven. Serve warm with butter and jam. Yum!

I prefer full on sweetness like the honey scones to this.

Estefania Possemato

Very bland and not at all as fancy looking as these, i feel like they put a lot more spices just to make it look colorful.

Amalia Bergert

Brought them out to a picnic with my kids who gobbled them right up :)

Going to try using some blueberry jam next time I heard they go well with cheese too despite how odd it sounds.

Cool recipe first time i'm seeing this and i'm shook that its a thing usually rosemary is only in savoury foods from what i know but im excited to try either way.
