Savory Scones

I am in the midst of an annoying cold, which has not allowed me to sleep very well and thus made me less inclined to write*.  However, I did make some wonderful rosemary, thyme and cheddar scones (a modification of this recipe I found via Cupcakes & Cashmere) that have actually acted as quite the comfort food for me over the past couple of days.

When I read the reviews for the original recipe (that called for fresh dill... which naturally I didn't have) many people had mentioned how forgiving it was.  This came in handy given the lack of kitchen appliances I have (think nothing electric, all by hand).

Admittedly, it didn't look all that pretty at first and it was difficult to mix by hand.  I substituted rosemary and thyme for the dill the recipe called for.  Really you could substitute in any herbs and the reviews on the Food Network site had a lot of alternative suggestions that sounded yummy.

The recipe also said to dice the butter and cheddar.  I would certainly suggest doing this for the butter if you must hand mix this (I can't imagine trying to incorporate huge chunks of butter evenly).  However when I make these again, I don't think there's much harm in using shredded cheddar.  Personally the cheddar was a bit too sparse within each scone for my taste (however, I do looove cheese, so this would work if you only want a taste of it here and there).  Overall, I liked this recipe.  I'm not sure I've been able to enjoy them to their full extent for my senses have been dulled due to this cold, but I've certainly eaten many of them.

This recipe also makes a ton, so you may definitely want to cut it in half!

*Sorry this was so poorly written... Hopefully that means the cold meds are kicking in!
