Savory Sun Dried Tomato Scones

I am a self-proclaimed anglophile. I have great dreams of visiting the U.K. for an extended period at some point in my life. I love the culture, the style, the history and the great details they place on food and entertaining. I think tea time is something that should be embraced here in the United States. The whole idea of taking some time out of your day to visit and enjoy a nice cuppa  with some biscuits, scones and finger sandwiches is utterly delightful to me! As such, I am a huge tea drinker and scone fan. I’ll pop into places to grab a tea and scone but I generally only find sweet scones near my house. Surprise, surprise, I’m not always in the mood for something sweet. Sometimes, I have a hankering for the savory side of foods instead. That’s why these Savory Sun Dried Tomato Scones are an absolute favorite of mine.

My Savory Sun Dried Tomato Scones are a true treat when served warm and slathered with some Irish butter. While the sun-dried tomatoes to provide a bit of sweetness the addition of garlic powder, onion powder, chives and parmesan cheese into the dough definitely make these into a delicious, savory treat.

The dough for these scones comes together very easily. It’s so easy in fact, that you’ll wonder why you haven’t been making scones for years.

I personally don’t own a scone pan. I find it easy to just form the dough into a circle that I’ve patted flat using my hands.

Once you have the dough circle you can just take a sharp knife and cut the circle into eighths. Just like you would cut a pie, cake or pizza.

After that you just need to place the sliced scones on a prepared pan and let them set for 20-30 minutes.

Once the scones have sat you just need to bake them to a beautiful, golden perfection.
