Recipe: Cheddar Scones

cheddar scones dough

The deep freeze, the closed Farmer’s Market, the grey of January: All factors that have contributed to a dramatic LOW in my cooking inspiration! I’m embarrassed to admit we’ve been eating a LOT of cheese quesadillas, steamed broccoli, and sliced apples. But you know what? Spring always comes. A Truth I cling to. Anyway, this freezing Monday morning brought a teensy bit of inspiration so here is a new and yummy recipe for you to try. This took about 5 minutes to prep, 15 minutes to bake, so easy easy easy! Enjoy!

Cheddar Scones

makes 12

2 cups multigrain flour (you can use whole wheat or spelt)

1 tbs baking powder

1/2 tsp coarse sea salt

generous pinch of chili flakes

1 cup shredded old cheddar

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 cup cream

1 egg

Directions: Preheat oven to 375. Whisk together all the dry ingredients, including cheddar. Drizzle olive oil over the flour mixture. In a measuring cup, whisk together the cream and the egg. Add the cream and egg to the flour mixture and stir with a fork until just combined. Turn out onto wax or parchment paper and pat into an 8 inch round circle. Cut into 12 pieces and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for about 15 mins.
