I have never tried scones in a patty tin, so this is an interesting approach that I may give a go.
It is quite different for scones – I’m quite tempted to call them muffins actually. I hope you try them. 🙂
Cheese muffins sound great!
Hi and thanks for stopping by. I have some more muffin/scone recipes to come in the next couple of weeks. Just to whet your appetite, lemon and poppy seed muffins, health muffins, what I know as traditional scones, and another cheese muffin recipe. 😉
You have a great blog and I have subscribed to receive all your updates.
I’ve never had a cheese scone before. Great idea! I’ll bet they would be tasty with American “chili.” It would be a nice alternative to cornbread.
What a fabulous idea of the chili. Not sure exactly what American chili is but I am picturing a sweet chilli sauce. Yum.
American Chili varies by region and by family, but this is a recipe similar to what I make out of my head:
At least for me it’s a soup of ground beef, kidney beans, and tomatoes flavored with cumin and chili powder and topped with cheddar cheese and a little sour cream. In the southern USA it is often paired with cornbread.
Thanks so much Michael. I had completely the wrong idea. I think when you put the word American in front of the Chili, it set me off on the wrong road.
When I started cooking a long time ago and a recipe called for “chilies,” (especially “green chilies” which is a really generic term) I was so confused what they were talking about because I only knew the hearty soup.
Hi Michael, I always err on the side of caution when it comes to anything “hot” – I am not that brave when it comes to chillies.
Me too. I usually put in half what is called for! Anyway, I think I will try your cheese scones sometime!
