What’s better than your aunt’s homemade scone recipe? Okay, maybe your grandma’s but for the purpose of this post the answer is NOTHING. The only way this could be better is if your aunt actually made them for you. This recipe is really simple, the apparent catch is trying not to burn them, which I obviously did. What’s so great about scones is that you can pretty much add whatever you want in them! I made broccoli, tomato, spinach and cheese scones.
2 c. flour
2 ½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1/3 c. butter
1 ½ c. grated cheddar cheese
1 c. plain yogurt or cottage cheese
1. Preheat the oven to 425 F.
2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
3. Add in butter and mix it in well (If you don’t have a pastry blender like me you can use your hands).
4. Stir in the cheese.
5. Add the yogurt or cottage cheese and mix well. It shouldn’t be too sticky, nor too dry and hard.
6. Add in additional ingredients such as steamed broccoli, tomatoes, herbes, etc. Can also had in ham, bacon, or savory herbes. Stir.
6. Form a ball and pat it into a circle or square or whatever shape you want, on an ungreased baking pan/sheet.
7. Bake till golden, about 15 minutes.
