Savory Herb Goat Cheese Scones
If your looking for a scone recipe that is fast, easy, versatile and delicious, look no further. This recipe is the one your looking for. These scones are perfect warm from the oven or with a slice of ham and cheese sandwiched in the middle. Savory Herb Goat Cheese Scones are perfect served along side a bowl of your favorite soup stew or chili. Heck, these scones are great all by themselves. You can make these scones many different ways just by changing the cheese and herbs used.
When I first starting making scones a few years back now already, was roughly around the same time I was bitten by the Pinterest bug. I searched high and low for scone recipes that looked good. Did I find the recipes!! The majority of the scone recipes I first made were on the sweeter side but as time went by and the more scones I tried and therefore consumed, I started to really like savory scones as much as or not more than sweet. Don’t get me wrong, sweet scones are super but there is nothing better than dunking a savory scone into a steamy bowl of soup:)
This recipe is from the blog Farmgirl Fare. A fantastic blog I came across when I first started blogging almost 4 years ago. Check out Susan’s blog and check out her mouth-watering recipes. This recipe is adapted from: Savory Cheese and Scallion Scones with Cream Cheese and Feta Savory Chive and Sharp Cheddar Scones
Delicious served with soup or with butter:)
- 2 1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 ounces herb goat cheese, room temperature
- 4 ounces shredded white cheddar cheese
- 4 scallions green and white parts, chopped
- 1 cup whole milk or half and half
- 1 large large egg
- 1 egg, for wash
- 2 tablespoons milk or half and half, for wash
Beat 1 egg and 2 tablespoons of milk (or half and half) well with a fork. Set aside.
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Combine 2 1/2 cups of the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the cheeses and toss gently with a fork until combined. Add the scallions and toss gently with a fork until combined.
Beat the milk (or half and half) with the egg and gently fold it into the dry ingredients, mixing lightly until a soft dough forms. Add up to 1/2 cup additional flour, if the dough is too sticky.
On a floured surface, gently pat the dough into a circle approximately 1-inch thick (or into two smaller circles for 12 scones) The key to tender scones is to handle the dough as little as possible and with a light touch. Cut the circle(s)into 8 or 12 wedges and place them on a heavy duty baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Brush the tops and sides of the scones with the egg wash. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or cool completely and refrigerate or freeze in a heavy zipper bag or airtight container.
