Sundried Tomato and Smoked Cheddar Scones. Wow, just wow!! SO yum!
I absolutely adore sundried tomatoes!! They are one of my favourite flavours to cook with, so naturally, I had to create a recipe for my blog with sundried tomatoes in it! These scones were the product of my experimentations and boy oh boy are they delicious!! A soft, buttery scone studded with tangy sundried tomatoes finished off with the slightly smokey flavour of the lovely smoked cheddar cheese. My mouth is totally watering as I type this!
Of all the many scone recipes I have posted so far, this one probably holds first place in my heart! This is the 6th scone recipe that I've posted since I started my blog last June when I also started posting a new scone recipe every other month! This is also the first savory scone recipe that I have posted in my scone series (other than my garlic cheddar biscuits). I have some more awesome ideas for savory scones, so stay tuned for lots of great recipes to come!

Sundried Tomato & Smoked Cheddar Scones
- 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- ¾ cup cold butter, cubed
- ½ cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup shredded smoked cheddar cheese
- ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped into small pieces
- dried basil for garnish
- Preheat the oven to 400℉. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Whisk the flour, baking powder, and sugar together in a large bowl. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry cutter until the pieces of butter are the size of peas.
- Whisk together the milk and egg in a small bowl and add to the flour/butter mixture along with the shredded cheese and sun-dried tomatoes. Stir together until the dough just starts to come together. Turn the contents of the bowl onto a clean counter and knead the mixture until it forms a loose ball. Do not over-mix!
- Flatten the dough into a round about 1 inch thick and 8 inches in diameter. Cut the round into 8 wedges using a pizza cutter and place them on the prepared baking sheet, garnish with dried basil. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-16 minutes or until the undersides are golden brown.
- Let the scones cool on the baking sheet. Enjoy!
