The addition of onions gives these scones a nice bite. You can even stir in some basil or oregano if you like. —Jolie Stinson, Marion, Indiana


  • 2 cups finely chopped onions
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
