Generally it is made around game nights so no one ever has seen them wondering around longer than that.

It’s an amazing super bowl cheese scone recipe with plain flour that goes perfect to every occasions. Be it a kids party or a barbecue weekend these scones won’t disappoint ever.

We make these cheese scones with plain flour thus using the properties of gluten to create a spongy, fluffy texture.

  1. Combine lukewarm milk and yeast in a cup. Set it aside.
  2. Combine flour, two eggs, sour cream, half of the butter and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Pour the yeast in as well.Cheese-scone-recipe-process
  3. Knead dough until in comes together and dough is completely separated from the edges of the bowl.Cheese-scone-recipe-process-3-SunCakeMom
  4. Cover the bowl and leave it in a room temperature place for half an hour to raise. If in doubt check the Knowledgebase for Baking with yeast.
  5. Prepare the butter that will separate the layers from each other like in a croissant. Take a big enough baking sheet and place the sliced up butter in a 8″ x 8″ / 20cm x 20cm square.Fluffy-cheese-scone-recipe-Process-1-SunCakeMom
  6. Pack the butter in by folding the sides of the baking sheets on then turn the whole thing upside down.Fluffy-cheese-scone-recipe-Process-2-SunCakeMom
  7. Spread the butter into a nice squarish shape with a rolling pin by gently hitting the butter and rolling to all corners.Fluffy-cheese-scone-recipe-Process-3-SunCakeMom
  8. Spread flour onto the surface before laying the risen dough on it.Fluffy-cheese-scone-recipe-Process-5-SunCakeMom
  9. To prepare the dough for a square shape flattening press the rolling pin on top of the dough vertically essentially crating three bumps.Fluffy-cheese-scone-recipe-Process-6-SunCakeMom
  10. Do the same horizontallyFluffy-cheese-scone-recipe-Process-7-SunCakeMom
  11. Flatten the dough with a rolling pin by starting rolling out from the middle of the dough through the corners first into a 10″ / 30cm wide square.Fluffy-cheese-scone-recipe-Process-8-SunCakeMom
  12. Place the butter square on top of the flattened dough in a way that the corners do not align with the corners of the dough but point to the middle of the dough’s side.Fluffy-cheese-scone-recipe-Process-10-SunCakeMom  Alternatively the butter can be spread on top of the dough given that it’s soft enough to be spread. Mind not to apply too much pressure to the dough at this stage as it can stick to the worktop.Cheese-scone-recipe-process-6-SunCakeMom
  13. Pack the butter in by folding two opposite corners of the dough into the middle.Fluffy-cheese-scone-recipe-Process-11-SunCakeMom Then fold the other two corners in the same way.Fluffy-cheese-scone-recipe-Process-12-SunCakeMom
  14. Fold the dough in half along one side.Fluffy-cheese-scone-recipe-Process-14-SunCakeMom
  15. Then fold it into half along the other side as well essentially creating a small but taller squarish shape.Fluffy-cheese-scone-recipe-Process-15-SunCakeMom
  16. Cover it with a clean cloth and leave it rise for another 20 minutes.Fluffy-cheese-scone-recipe-Process-16-SunCakeMom
  17. After 20 minutes roll the dough with a rolling pin onto a squarish shape again. The actual shape doesn’t matter much now.Cheese-scone-recipe-process-16-SunCakeMom
  18. Flour a round cookie cutter (Size depends on how big or small we want the scones.)Cheese-scone-recipe-process-17-SunCakeMom
  19. Cut scones out of the dough and place them on the baking sheet on the tray.Cheese-scone-recipe-process-11-SunCakeMom

  22. Grate the cheese and put it on top of each scones.Cheese-scone-recipe-process-13-SunCakeMom
