it’s her birthday!

So I made some scones to experiment. Fully acknowledging that my surprise is now spoiled, I present possibly the most delicious little savory scones (without butter). Taken from

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion (1) – chopped (they said 0.5 inch squares?)
  • 4 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp coarse salt
  • 2 cups grated parmesan
  • 2 cups chilled whipping cream
  • Rosemary, thyme, oregano
  • Brown sugar (For onions)
  1. Caramelize onions in a pan with olive oil; preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. While onions are being caramelized, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Also, grate parmesan (the onions will take a while). When onions begin to yellow/show transparency, add a bit of thyme, rosemary, and oregano as well as a couple pinches of brown sugar for more flavor.
  3. Mix in the grated parmesan with the flour mixture, then add the caramelized onions. Slowly mix in the whipping cream to the batter to form a soft kneaded dough.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, create two 3/4 inch thick rounds of dough (divide in half and pat) – add a bit of flour if it seems sticky! Then cut each round into wedges – the recipe says 6 but I actually did 8? Doesn’t seem to matter much either way! Then, place in the center rack of the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes (until bottoms are golden brown and tops are slightly brown– use a toothpick to double check!)

These were my first scones ever, and surprisingly simple and super delicious. Hope you enjoy them sisters! Will be sending them out tomorrow 🙂
