Cheddar dill scones are a savory quick bread that creates an irresistible aroma.
Heat oven to 400°F. Combine all ingredients except butter, half & half and eggs in medium bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in half & half and eggs just until moistened.
Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth (1 minute). Divide dough in half; roll each half into 8-inch circle. Cut each circle into 8 wedges.
Place wedges 1 inch apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

I made these to use up some grated cheese and leftover ham. I skipped the dill, and parsley, and added some left over chopped ham. They were delicious! Somewhat dense, but light and flaky. Will make again as they are easy and fast. I would not knead them as much next time, as I think I may have over kneaded them. I also sprinkled some additional shredded cheese (1/2TBS) on each one when they came out of the oven. It melted and made them lovely and appetizing.
So light and flakey. My husband and I loved them!
Just loved this recipe! Had been looking for something tasty that everyone would enjoy at the meal, and something that was an alternative to bread or a roll. The dough was soft and very easy to work with, I did add a tsp. of garlic granules, and it was so good. It was a great addition to a meal of hearty soup. Try it, you'll love it!
I made this recipe last night and it was great!! I used milk instead of half and half and make one 8" circle and 8 wedges. I really liked how this recipe turned out. I will make this again. :-)
I love these. I made eight big scones instead of 16. they are great. Very light and flakey. this is a keeper.
I've made these numerous times just as the recipe instructs. Love splitting them open and smearing with a little butter. Great with soup!!
Mine turned out light, flaky and buttery. I thought they needed a touch more dill, and I added green onion instead of parsely. They were great with the stew we made.
I made these with wheat flour but I think this was a mistake. The wheat floor took away that some of that delicate dill flavor. Also I was a little disappointed at how dense the scones were on the inside. I realize scones are dense anyway but I would have like a little more softness in the center. Next, I will try with white flour and not knead as long. All that being said, the scones were still tasty, easy to make and and I will try them again.

Spring is finally in the air! The days are getting longer, my commute is getting shorter (thanks to less ice and snow), and we just bought a pair of pint-sized, yellow rubber boots for our toddler to go puddle-stomping. After a very long, very cold winter, I feel like a mama bear coming out of hibernation. Thank goodness for sunshine!
