Scones are one of my all time favourite childhood tea time jewels!
In those days, it was a must to have them clotted cream and jam (if you were in the UK of course), or butter and jam when no clotted cream available!
Well, now as an adult I prefer savory scones, bacon and cheddar, rosemary, etc….but today I will pay a rendition to the perfect combination, great for entertaining!
Would love to hear your feedback on this great combination.
- 2 cups of flour
- 4 tsps of baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup of butter at room temperature
- 2/3 cup of milk
- 1/3 cup of chopped sun-dried tomatoes in oil
- 1/3 cup of crumbled goats cheese
- 2 tbsp of chopped chives
In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients, then add the butter followed by the milk and mix together until the dough comes together. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, goats cheese and chives and fold dough until mixed well.
Roll the dough out to aprox 3/4 ” thickness and cut into 1 1/2 ” (diameter) rounds or you can always cut them into triangles or shape of choice.
Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in oven at 450 Deg F for 12-14 minutes.
