Scones are one of my favorite breakfast foods. They’re endlessly adaptable, easy to whip up, and they freeze wonderfully, which means I can make them for a weekend breakfast and have plenty for the upcoming week. Their ability to so easily be made ahead of time is one of the main reasons I knew I wanted scones on the menu for Clara’s birthday party.
My first draft of the party menu had our much loved bacon jalapeño scones on it, but I ultimately decided against them since I wasn’t sure how popular they’d be with the little ones. These cheddar ones were a huge hit with everyone, so I think I made the right call.
Almost biscuit-like, these scones are tender and flaky, with pockets of cheddar cheese. The garlic flavor is mild but still noticeable. These were great for brunch but would be equally as wonderful with a bowl of your favorite soup. Make a batch and freeze what you don’t need. Then you’ll have some ready whenever you want. And that’s always a good thing.
