These simple yet impressive scones are perfect for breakfast, brunch, and beyond (recipe here).
Looking for an easy and interesting addition to your holiday bread basket? Light and moist on the inside, with a pleasant little crunch on the outside, these Savory Chive and Sharp Cheddar Scones are made with softened cream cheese instead of butter and mix up quickly.
Serve them warm from the oven instead of rolls: plain, buttered, or with cream cheese, goat cheese, or homemade herbed yogurt cheese. I like to split and toast them in the toaster oven for breakfast, then slather both crunchy halves with butter. They're great for making little sandwiches, and I've even used them in place of burger buns.
These scones also freeze beautifully, so you can make them now and serve them later. No chives? Try my original scallion and feta cheese version instead—and learn how easy it is to grow your own chives here.
