Spiced Parmigiano Scones

Spiced Parmigiano SconesIt has been a while since I baked with the creative cookies Exchange. Things have been topsy turvy these past few months including but not limited to my blog being hacked by someone to spread malicious content through a wordpress plug in. As soon as Google notified me about the hack and possible malware distribution through my blog, I took the blog offline. Then my poor husband had to work relentlessly to debug it, find the malicious virus and bring the blog back online.

Once that was done, a friend of the teen landed here to stay with us. And with that came the barrage of friends that both of them know. My house is full of always hungry teen girls and boys. It gives me the perfect opportunity to bake.

So here we are with a brand new recipe for Spiced Parmigiano Scones scones. Although not technically a cookie, a scone is sort of in between a cookie and a quick bread. And I do apologize for the rushed photos. There isn’t much you can do when a bunch of teens are hovering around you to see what you made and if they could eat it.

  1. I will introduce this site to my wife cos she loves baking cake/cookie.

  2. Can’t wait to try these. Parmesan and bread are an unbeatable combo. Sounds like you’ve had your hands full lately. Kids, i can help with but not software. I wouldn’t have had a clue! Make that a bottle of wine!

  3. Great post with full recipe.
    Seems very delicious and i can’t take my eyes off from the above pics.

  4. So happy to see you back and so sorry you got hacked. Lucky you to have a husband that can debug all of that evil maliciousness! Bottom line, these things look amazing!

  5. So happy to see you back baking again! How nice to picture your kitchen filled with laughter and friends– it sounds like your house is THE place to be for your daughter and her friends, I hope I can create the same for my boys as they enter teenage years and beyond.

  6. Good to see you back! I was wondering what happened. So sorry you had to deal with malware! Yuck. Anyway, love these scones — such a lovely treat. Thanks!

  7. I’m glad your back baking with the group! Sorry to hear about the virus, I was absent the last four bakes, purely due to procrastination!

  8. A tasty alternative is to use 12 Tbls of unsalted butter and to replace the milk or heavy cream with 1 cup of buttermilk. Yields a nice moist interior and great flavor.

    • I think I quite like it without the buttermilk. The cream helps balance out the flavors from the parmesan. And there is enough butter in this as is 🙂 thank you for your comment.

  9. There’s never a bad time for scones….especially with cheese!

  10. You had me at scone!

  11. I’m glad you got the malware cleaned up. Your scones look lovely and like they would be a nice afternoon treat.
