Seriously thought I have back logs of journals and pictures from our recent trip to California that I want to post and some Halloween Party fun that merits some blog shout outs... I blame facebook
Anyways, I just wanted to let all of my faithful readers out there (all 5 of you) how awesome my pear, asiago, rosemary scones turned out! I am not a regular or confident baker, so when things come out just right I get really excited. I even altered the recipe just a bit and got a hint of honey on the top that just adds that extra pop to make them stand out.
From Southern Living Dec. issue:
Preheat oven to 450
- Mix 2 cups flour, 1 tbsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 3/4 cup finely chopped pear, 1/2 cup grated asiago cheese together in a large bowl.
- Cut in 1/2 cup cold butter and mix together until it looks like the consistency of peas
- Freeze for 5 minutes
- Mix 1 tbsp finely chopped rosemary and 3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp whipping cream.
- Pour cream into flour mix and stir until moist
- Place dough on wax paper and form into desired square/rectangle (about 1- 1/2 inch thick)
- Cut into desired sizes and place on lightly greased baking sheet
- Brush with extra whipping cream and drizzle with honey
- Bake for 13-15 minutes
YUM! There are 8 other varieties in the magazine... I may just try the chocolate chip ones next.
What are you excited about making for Thanksgiving this year?
