Leeky Cheesy Valentine Scones
To know me may not be to love me, but forget the chocolate. Savory folk...have I got a Valentine scone for you!
An adaption from one of my favorite scone recipes, Farmgirl's Savory Cheese & Scallion Scones, this version, with lots of luscious leeks and heady Tintern Cheese, creates my favourite scone to date.
I substituted 1 big, fat, hunking leek for the scallions. I chopped it finely and cooked it for about 5 minutes in a little olive oil. I used half Tintern Cheese, a very strong Welsh soft white cheese with scallions and chives, and sharp cheddar. I cut back on the half & half (3/4 cup). I (obviously) used a heart shape cutter and baked the scones for 15-20 minutes.
I can't even begin to tell you how incredible these taste: plain, dripped in butter, melted with cheese. Taste them for yourself!
