it’s her birthday!Posted: May 22, 2011
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 epicurious.com
- 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)
- Caramelize onions in a pan with olive oil; preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 🙂
