Sweet or savory…I love scones!
2 cup flour
1 1/2 c. mashed potatoes
2 T chopped rosemary
1 tsp salt
1/2 c grated cheddar cheese, divided
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 garlic clove, finely minced
2 T butter, melted
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking pan with parchment paper.
In a bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder, rosemary, garlic and 1/2 cheese.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Mix together egg and milk in a separate bowl and then pour into the well. Mix well. Add potatoes. Mix again.
Transfer dough to a floured board and knead (just a little) with floured hands. Flatten dough to about 1.5 cm in height and cut into about 8 triangles.
Transfer triangles to prepared baking pan, being sure to spread triangles out a bit. Brush the tops with melted butter and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden.
We had these with a simple summer salad of chicken, greens and heirloom tomatoes and some blueberries.
Did I change anything? I didn’t add the rosemary into the batter, I just sprinkled it on top of a couple of the scones since I wasn’t sure if everyone would like the rosemary or not. Then I added the cheese on top of that. I didn’t brush the tops with melted butter, but I wish I would have and that’s why I added it to the recipe.
What did the family think? Hubby liked them, our oldest LOVED them (as I knew he would) and I thought they were just okay. I am going to make these again and add the butter; I think it will make a world of difference.
