Jalapeno & Pepper Jack Scones

I am a big fan of jalapenos, therefore I could not resist trying out this Jalapeno & Pepper Jack Scones recipe found via Food Coma. These savory scones incorporate chopped jalapenos and cubes of pepper jack cheese into the dough to create a super tasty snack!

The baking technique was interesting. The dough is formed into a big disc on a baking sheet and cut pizza-style so they puff up into connected, triangular wedges while baking. How good does this look?

The scones are best eaten fresh out of the oven, when the cheese is still melty. In my opinion, no added spread or butter is necessary – they are gooey and delicious! Sauteeing the jalapenos before working them into the dough tames a lot of their bite. In fact, I didn’t find these scones to be all that spicy! They cetainly had a peppery aftertaste, but by no means make you breathe fire. ;) They were dense and filling, and perfectly moist.

I still enjoyed eating the scones for breakfast a day or two after I made them. I’ve started using this cute glass jar to display baked goodies in my kitchen. I purchased this jar a few years ago to use as a part of a candy buffet at our wedding. I’m trying to go for a retro-bakery feel.
