Okay, so I needed to separate all of these scone recipes. I just have too many. I would say that the base for all of these is by far my favorite. I really have become a scone snob and I hope these live up to the hype for you too. Check out the other flavors like chai tea, lavender white chocolate, chocolate chunk, or earl grey lavender tea infused follow their links or search scone on the site.
Makes 8 scones per recipe
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
½ tsp sea salt
½ cup sugar (only 1 tablespoon for goat cheese & thyme)
6 Tbsp unsalted butter, cold
2 Tablespoons thyme
1/2 cup goat cheese
½ cup + 2 Tbsp heavy cream
Preheat oven to 425° F, prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly flour one.
In large bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
Cut in the butter (use cheese grater to make this easier), the mixture needs to be a little chunky, not smooth. Add in thyme and goat cheese. Mix.
Pour in the heavy cream and egg, mix with hands until a dough forms. Roll dough out on a floured surface and form a circle about 1” thick.
Cut your dough into triangles as you would a pizza with a pizza cutter (or use cookie cutter to make shapes). Brush the scones with a little heavy cream. Sprinkle with a little salt on top.
Place scones on prepared sheet separated 1-2 inches. Bake for roughly 20 minutes or until slightly golden.
Remove scones and let cool.
