Sometimes you have a bad day. Sometimes you have lots of bad days in a row. Then you have a good day, and its exciting and fun. That is what has just happened to me. I was starting to feel like there was a bit of a dark cloud following me around (only there wasn’t because its been 90 degrees L ) the last few weeks. I just have not been super excited about stuff. Then, BAM, the things I were overthinking and having anxiety about figured themselves out, and I got the air conditioner to stop making that funny and super annoying noise. ALSO! Jenny and I are both really excited about our book coming out next Tuesday. You can see some recipes and pictures here. YAY! WE ARE REALLY EXCITED OMG! Ok. Anyway, White Cheddar and Black Pepper Scones. Sometimes to get through the dark times, you need to shake things up and make savory scones. Sometimes you need to drink tea in the morning instead of coffee, sometimes you need to go workout until your butt is sore, and then eat 3 White Cheddar & Black Pepper Scones with butter. Sometimes you have to do it. Get to it!

  16. Averie @ Averie Cooks Not Specified Not Specified

    I love the sharpness of white cheddar. I used to eat white cheddar on black pepper triscuits all the time! Your scones look about 1 million times better than that poor-man’s combo!

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Omg, Averie! That’s exactly where this idea came from! I love black pepper triscuits….esp with extra sharp white cheddar and a drizzle of honey! My favorite college snack, back in the day. I’m so happy this reminded you of that. :)

  24. Joanna Not Specified Not Specified

    All of a sudden, I’m starving! I’ve had scones on the brain all week but wasn’t thinking savory until now.
    I like to freeze my scone dough for a couple of hours then pop them straight in the hot oven to ensure no butter melts out so that the croissants are moist and flaky.
