Description

Savory biscuit-scones made with ricotta cheese and green onions.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Unbleached All-purpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • ¾ Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 5 Tablespoons Chilled Unsalted Butter, Cut Into 1/4-inch Cubes
  • ½ cups Chopped Scallions
  • 1 cup Ricotta Cheese
  • ⅔ cups Milk
  • 1  Egg, Beaten With 1 Teaspoon Water For Egg Wash
  • Sea Salt, Black Pepper And Smoked Paprika For Topping

Preparation

Heat oven to 425ºF. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Stir in scallions and ricotta cheese. Add milk and stir until just combined and a shaggy dough forms.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently into a ball. Carefully pat down ball into a 1-inch-tall rectangle; divide into 8 equal pieces. Carefully transfer scones to an ungreased baking sheet. Brush tops with egg wash and sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper and smoked paprika.

Bake 15-20 minutes or until scones are golden brown and puffy. Remove from oven; cool 5 minutes before serving.

I was really happy with how these turned out. Beautiful presentation, easy to make and yummy. I think they could have used a teeny bit more pizazz, next time I think I’ll add a little more paprika or even some cayenne pepper.

Just ate two scones fresh out of the oven. Made directed and they had a wonderfully light savory taste.
