Fresh dill and salty cheese is a match made in heaven; that's why I've combined the two in this Savoury Dill and Feta Scones.  Light and fluffy, it's hard to eat just the one!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, cold, cut into cubes
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup fresh dill
  • 1 cup feta, crumbled

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.  Set aside.
  • In a food processor, add the flour, butter, sugar, salt, and baking powder.  Pulse until the mixture comes together and looks like course sand.
  • Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl.  Stir in the milk - just until incorporated.  Add the 3/4 cup of the feta and the dill.  Fold into the batter.
  • You can pat the entire mixture into a thick disc-like shape and cut the dough into 8 even wedges, or you can scoop the batter onto the prepared baking sheet using a large spring-release scoop, like I have done.  
  • Give the scones room to grow during the baking process. Top with the leftover feta and bake for 18 minutes.
  • Allow the scones to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling. Otherwise, after the 5 minutes of cooling, these scones can be served right away.
