The fresh taste of spring chives incorporated into a savory scone, complimented with cheddar cheese.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbs baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup chives, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated


Preheat your oven to 425 (F). Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cheese in a large mixing bowl.Combine the buttermilk and chives then add them to the dry ingredients. Stir just until barely combined then turn out the sticky dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead 5 times, just enough to gather everything together.Shape the dough into a rough 8 inch circle. Cut into 8 wedges and then place them on your baking sheet with room around each one.Lightly brush the top with some cream or milk. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, just until the bottoms are golden brown. Transfer from the baking sheet and serve immediately.  Enjoy!
