Savory Scones

Yield: 8 scones depending on your cuts


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 t salt

  • 1 T baking powder

  • 1 & 1/2 t granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup cold butter

  • 1 cup shredded cheese of your choice

  • 1 cup cream or buttercream (or a different dairy!)

  • Your mix-ins (about 1/2-3/4 cup)

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 425°F.

  2. Put your flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar into the bowl of a food processor or a large bowl. Pulse or whisk to combine.

  3. Add cold, cubed butter and pulse or cut in the butter until the mixture becomes sandy and holds together for a second when squeezed. (For a visual, check out the 9:29 mark).

  4. If your mixture is in a food processor bowl, pour it into a separate bowl.

  5. Add in your mix-ins and your shredded cheese. I used green onion and a cheddar blend. If you are using a protein make sure that everything is cooked before you put it into your scone dough.

  6. Gradually add in your dairy choice -- you may not use all of your cream or buttermilk, based on your mix-in quantity. Pour some in and then mix it by hand. Do this until your dough isn't crumby and comes together. To check out this process see the 13:51 mark.

  7. Pour your dough onto a floured work surface and gently press it out into a circle, about a 1/2 inch thick. (You can see this process at the 15:32 mark).

  8. Cut into 8 triangles. I like to do a cream wash with my leftover cream but this is entirely optional (and I like to sprinkle some sea salt on top before baking).

  9. Bake at 425°F for 25-35 minutes (dough thickness and your oven will affect oven time, so give it a look half way through!).

  10. Enjoy!

Notes:

  • These freeze wonderfully! Just lay them flat and wrap well in plastic. You can bake them right from frozen! Just increase cooking time by 5 minutes or so.
