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.
