We went on a short staycation last week and ate WAY too much! We had a blast, loved all the fun activities, and ate WAY too much. Yes, it was worth repeating! But we had some amazing food. Trust me…I will share all about our staycation in a couple weeks, but I had to recreate one dish this weekend.
On Mother’s Day, we ate at a nice restaurant at the Westin Kierland Resort in Scottsdale, AZ. I ordered the scones, one sweet and one savory…they said it was a Scottish savory scone. Um…okay. Sounded good to me! Well…I had to fight off the rest of my family for my scone…my Mother’s Day breakfast was under attack. I knew then that I had to recreate it at home.
I’ve made several scone recipes before, but they were sweet. And I had the most amazing Irish cheddar cheese sitting in my fridge dying to be used in a tasty dish. Is that wrong? I used Irish cheese in a “Scottish” scone? I might have broken some sort of UK law. Shhh…don’t tell! So, I got up early yesterday morning and started playing around with the recipe.
Okay, so at 6:45 in the morning, I’m not always functional. I couldn’t find my biscuit cutter anywhere…so I dipped a cup in a little flour and then cut my scones with it! This dough is so tender that it worked perfectly.
Seriously…If you want sneak peaks, you have to follow me on Instagram (myfamilytable)!
Thank you Kerrygold for beginning my obsession with this cheese! It’s absolutely amazing. Kerrygold USA was a Camp Blogaway Sponsor. I was not obligated to use their product! But why wouldn’t I…it’s delicious!
