Parmesan Scones

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

    These are a tad dry; however, the taste is wonderful. I made these into breakfast sandwiches.

    We tried these last night. Not sure what went wrong - followed the recipe to a t. The oven was preheated and we checked at 12 minutes but left them in for 15. When we took them out they were raw/gummy inside. I put them back in the over (bf said to throw out). I think they were probably cooked for a total of 25 - 30 minutes before they were thoroughly cooked (not doughy inside). The flavor is great but they are really dense and dry. Really wish I knew what happened to try again but I fear we will get the same result next time. I wonder if substituting butter for the cream would be an option.

    This was such an easy recipe to make and so helpful to have the video to guide me! Definitely bringing these scones along for my next book club!

    These are so simple, delicious and provide so many serving opportunities. I served these with a crustless quiche for brunch and they were a huge hit. I think I will try some different herbs next time - just to play with flavors. Don't skip the onions - they are perfect in this!

    These scones turn out fluffy and light - the cheese and garlic combine to create a subtle, savory flavor that would be perfect for any brunch or other meal.
