These Rosemary Goat Cheese Scones are the perfect savory breakfast recipe for your next spring brunch or summer party.
2 & 3/4 Cups Flour + Extra for Stickiness
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Stick of Cold Butter (1/2 cup)
2 Tablespoons Minced Fresh Rosemary
1/2 Cup Goat Cheese, crumbled
1 Cup Whole Milk
2 Tablespoons Butter, melted
First, preheat your oven to 400° degrees Fahrenheit *(1),
In a medium bowl sift all of the dry ingredients, 2 & 3/4 cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, & 2 tablespoons sugar.
Use a grater to shred the butter into the flour.
Next, stir in 2 tablespoons rosemary & 1/2 cup goat cheese.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients & pour in your 1 cup whole milk & gently combine the ingredients. *(2)
Freezing/Baking Note. *(3)
Split the scone dough in half, place both halves on a floured surface, & using your hands (with a little extra flour) shape the dough into round disks about 2 inches thick.
2 dough disks make 12 scones.
4 dough disks make 24 mini scones.
Cut the dough into scones with a pizza cutter. Place the scones on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper & brush the top of each scone with butter.
Place the scones in your preheated oven & bake your scones for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden.
Your Rosemary Goat Cheese Scones are done baking when they are lightly golden on top.
Keep your Rosemary Goat Cheese Scones stored in a loosely sealed container in your fridge for up to one week. *(4)
If you plan on freezing the dough before baking hold off on preheating your oven.
Make sure that you don’t over mix, simply combine to create a dough.
You can go ahead & shape/bake your scones if you are in a hurry. I like to place my scone dough in the freezer for 30-45 minutes (covered in plastic wrap) so that the butter gets extra cold so that when the scones bake there will be pockets of butter in the scones!
The flavors are enhanced when warm. Be sure to reheat your scones, wrapped in foil, in your oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 5-10 minutes for extra warm flavors.
