Savory Irish Cheese Scones

With St. Patrick's Day falling on a Sunday this year, start your day off with a fantastic brunch!  Try these Savory Irish Cheese Scones paired with bacon and eggs for a special treat.

Savory Irish Cheese Scones

Ingredients:
  • 1 box Stonewall Kitchen Traditional Scone Mix
  • 4 oz (1 cup) Irish Cheddar (such as Dubliner), shredded
  • 1 oz (1/4 cup) Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • 2 tsp. fresh rosemary, finely minced
  • 1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, cold, cut into cubes
  • 3/4 cup ice water
Directions:
  1. Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat oven to 450 degrees F
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  3. Pour contents of the Traditional Scone Mix into the bowl of a food processor or a bowl and use a pastry blender.
  4. Add the cheeses and rosemary and pulse to aerate and distribute the cheese.
  5. Add the cold, cubed butter and pulse 6 or 8 times to break up the butter - chunks of butter should still be visible.
  6. Add the water a few tablespoons at a time, pulsing the processor to mix.
  7. When all of the water has been added and incorporated, dump the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and bring it together into a ball.
  8. Pat the dough out into an 8 inch circle.
  9. Cut into 6-8 wedges and arrange on the lined baking sheet.
  10. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown
  11. Serve warm and enjoy!
