3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I made these for a baby shower that was in the late morning and served them with orange marmalaide jam. There were NONE left! Everyone loved them.
I made the recipe with changes simply due to what I had on hand. In addition, i made the scones shape and size different because it seems to work best for me. I added dry herbs instead by using 2 pinches of basil and 2 pinches of Italian seasoning. I prefer granulated garlic and used a little less than 1/2 teaspoon. I added 1/4 teaspoon of salt. I used the 4 variety- Mexican style cheese instead of the cheddar. I divided the dough in half but out of each half i divided by 4 making 8 total. I shaped each (8) into a round shape 6"- 7" wide. They turned out perfect. They were not dry as all other cheese scones have been.
The look and texture was fabulous! But next time I'll add more garlic, possibly crushed garlic cloves.
