Eggless Cheese & Herb Scones

Scones, this tiny cakes or single serving quick breads are just prefect to start a day with a cup of milk. As per wiki,Scones are usually made of wheat, barley or oatmeal, with baking powder as a leavening agent, and are baked on sheet pans. They are often lightly sweetened and are occasionally glazed. The scone is a basic component of the cream tea or Devonshire tea. It differs from a teacake and other sweet buns, which are made with yeast. A scone is in some senses a type of pastry since it is made with essentially the same ingredients as shortcrust, though with different proportions of fat to flour.

Scones doesnt exists as sweetened ones, they do exists as savoury version. My today's post goes for a cheese loaded savoury scones, you can have this cheese & herbs loaded scones with some spiced cream cheese or else simply with salted butter. But we had ours without any spread or sides as they were very cheesy and absolutely flavourful coz of the fresh herbs i haved added in this scones. I picked scones for this month's  Home Baker's Challenge, a monthly baking event.I couldnt stop myself picking savoury scones along with sweet scones for this month's challenge.Today, am running an another week of blogging marathon with baking as theme, since i want to clear my drafts, this week's post are going to be different bakes from savoury to sweet, stay tuned. The original recipe i picked have an egg yolk for the egg wash, obviously i just skipped it.

1/2cup Chopped coriander leaves

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Sift the flour,baking powder, baking soda, salt, flaxseed meal and pepper powder in a large bowl.

Add in the butter to the flour mixture , using your fingertips, rub the butter into flour quickly.
