Easiest Scones Ever (See Jane Bake)

Fresh out of the oven.
When I made pumpkin-turkey chili last weekend, I knew a starchy accompaniment was needed to round out the meal.  Pressed for time and creativity, I stumbled upon these Quick and Easy Scones on allrecipes.com; once I saw the simplicity of the recipe, I was sold.  Because I'm such a rebel (or perhaps a glutton) in the kitchen, I doubled the amount of cheese, garlic, and threw in an extra tablespoon of butter for good measure.  These were my first scones and they definitely won't be my last.  I still can't believe how simple and delicious they were and can't wait to make other tweaks and variations to this basic recipe.

Be sure to buy self-rising flour for breads and scones.









Instead of using nonstick spray, I drizzled olive oil on the baking sheet.


Just call me Poppin' Fresh.

These look great! My first try at making scones was a fail, but I may have to try again for these. I don't think they rise that much (I made mine kinda flat) so that may have been my downfall. As an 'English' person, I should know how to make scones to go with my tea! :)
