Dilly Cheese Scones

Dilly Cheese Scones

These are from Gifts That Taste Good, Leisure Arts, 1990-91 and I made them for the church bazaar. I thought the dill weed would be over powering but it was the perfect balance. These will most likely become a regular attraction at our house. Of course, dh and I had to sample the funny shaped one made from the cutout scraps.

2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 teaspoons dried dill weed
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup butter
1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese (orange gives it color)
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 teaspoon water

Preheat oven to 425F. In a large bowl, combine first 5 ingredients. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Stir in cheese. Make a well in the center of mixture; pour in milk. Mix with a fork just until blended.

With floured hands, turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and pat out to 1/2 inch thickness. Using a 2 inch round biscuit cutter, cut out scones and place on an ungreased baking sheet. In a small cup, blend egg and water; lightly brush over scones. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Serve warm.

Yield: about 1 dozen, but I got 9.
Note: To reheat scones, wrap in aluminum foil and bake 10minutes at 400F.
