Goat Cheese Chive & Sun Dried Tomato Scones

Goat Cheese, Sun Dried Tomatoes and Chives make these savory Scones irresistible. Perfect for breakfast or lunch, or to snack on. You won't be able to put these Goat Cheese Scones down. 

  • Total Time: 34 minutes
  • Yield: 13 2-inch scones 1x


Units Scale
  • 8oz (2 Scant Cups) All-Purpose/ Plain Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 2oz (1/4 Cup) Unsalted Butter, cut into chunks and chilled
  • 1 1/2 oz (3 Tablespoons) Milk
  • 1 1/2 oz (3 Tablespoons) Heavy Cream
  • 1 Large Egg, at room temperature
  • 1 oz (2 Tablespoons) Chives, chopped
  • 1 oz (2 Tablespoons) Sun-Dried Tomatoes, chopped (if using the jarred sun-dried tomatoes pat off the excess oil)
  • 2 oz (1/4 Cup) Goat Cheese, crumbled and chilled
  • 1 Egg and a little water for an egg wash


  1. Preheat oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with a silpat liner or parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl add the flour and baking powder and mix in the chilled butter. You want to rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips. Do this for about 5 minutes or so, so that the mixture looks like breadcrumbs and there are no more large chunks of butter.
  3. In a small bowl add milk, cream, and egg, whisk to combine. Add this mixture to the dry mixture, mix until just combined. Fold in the chives and sun-dried tomatoes. Then fold in goat cheese, knead the mixture into a disc about 3/4 inch thick. The scone batter should be quite dry so it holds its shape. You may need to add an extra splash of milk to bind it. You can cut them into triangles or you can use a cookie cutter/ biscuit cutter. I used a 2 inch round cutter and made 13 scones.
  4. Place scones on baking sheet, 9 at a time.
  5. In a small bowl mix together the egg and a little water. Using a pastry brush, brush each scone with the egg wash.
  6. Bake scones for 12-14 minutes, turning the tray around after 8 minutes.
  7. Let cool for 5 minutes on tray and then store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
