Cheddar Sweet Corn Scones

27 May

Mmmm, love love love scones. But wanted something a little more savory than sweet right now. We had a smidge of steamed sweet corn leftover from dinner 2 nights ago, and a little brick of cheddar as well… Right on!


  • 2 c flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 4 oz cheddar, grated
  • 1/3 c steamed sweet corn (cut off the cob of course)
  • 2 tbsp chopped scallion onions
  • 1/4 c cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 c skim milk


  • Preheat to 425. Whisk all dry ingredients together. Add cut butter and crumble into flour mixture with hands– until mixture is in tiny pea-crumbles. Stir in cheese and corn.
  • Add milk and mix in with hands. (Add a bit more milk if it is still too dry)
  • Once you have a good dough-like consistency, turn out onto floured surface. Pat down to a thin rectangle. Cut into triangles with a knife and bake on a silpat (or parchment paper) for ~15 min, or until golden brown.
