Blue Cheese and Scallion Scones

These scones are cheezy fo’ sheezy! They are so good, but they are just on the line of being too cheesy. However, that being said, they’re great with soups and salads. Blue cheese is potent so to add 1 1/2 cups of it to batter is a lot. I’d take out somewhere between 1/2 and 2/3 cup. The recipe below is the original, so feel free to tweak the cheese ratio as you see fit.
