Don’t these savoury scones look so appealing? We find them to be very versatile indeed. 

We serve them with soups and stews especially, where the delicious herb flavours will compliment either of those hearty choices.

  3. Make a well in the center of this mixture and add the soured milk. (to make soured milk just a a tbsp of vinegar to lemon juice tot eh milk)
  4. Pour into the well and mix only enough to form a dough ball. Roll to 1/2 inch thickness and cut out scones with a knife or biscuit cutter and place on parchment lined baking sheet.

Delicious! The only change I made increased dried herbs to 2.5 tsp and decreased the sugar to 1/3 cup to make them a little more savory.

I did not like the added 1/2 cup of sugar and found it really took away from this savoury scone.

Love this recipe! I've used it as a base recipe for many scone variations. When making savory scones I decrease the sugar to 1/4 cup, I find this is a good balance. But with a super sharp cheddar, 1/2 cup sugar does work well. Enjoy!

Recipe was easy to follow, but I do feel like the 1/2 cup of sugar was to much and they were too sweet for my liking. Will make them again but tweak a few things.

I think you are probably right. I might revisit this recipe myself.

I made these today for an after-work treat for my guys - I threw in half a cup of crumbled bacon as an added bonus :) They were delicious! I froze half of them in sandwich containers so they can take them in their lunches - at their request :)
