Savory Scones

Jalapenos.  Goat cheese.  Prosciutto.  Thyme.  Green onion.

Could these scones get any more savory?  I think not.  

Savory Scones

  • 2 1/2 c. flour
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • a pinch of pepper
  • 1/2 c. cold butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 c. buttermilk
  • 2/3 c. goat cheese
  • 1/4 lb. prosciutto
  • 1/4 c. green onion
  • 3 tbsp. thyme

 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and pepper together (this will be easiest with an electric mixer).  Do not over-mix.
  3. Cut in butter.*
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and buttermilk and then add to mixture.
  5. Tear prosciutto into small pieces.
  6. Chop green onions into small pieces.
  7. Strip thyme leaves off the stem.
  8. Mix in goat cheese, prosciutto, green onion and thyme.
  9. Scoop the dough into a greased scone pan** (the dough will be sticky).
  10. Put in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  11. Take out and bake for 20-25 minutes.  The tops will be slightly brown when they are ready.
  12. Let cool for 10 minutes and scoop out of scone tray.

*Tip1: The easiest way to cut in butter is to use a pastry blender.  You may also use knives or a food processor.  The important thing is to remember to do this while the butter is straight out of the fridge.

**Tip2: If you do not have a scone/cornbread pan, you may use a muffin pan or drop them onto a baking sheet.  If you’re interested in ordering a scone pan, I highly recommend this one.

The smell that emits throughout the house while these scones are cooking is heavenly.  This is a meal to enjoy for breakfast with a scoop of tomato jam or for dinner with some warm chili.

 

Enjoy!
