Savory Rosemary Garlic Scones

In preparation for my tea party bridal shower in a few days, one of the scone flavors that I made was rosemary and garlic. As you can imagine, we have a ton of sweets and just talking about all the sugar made me crave something a little more savory. So I made the executive decision to make something a bit more savory to throw into the mix.

Ingredients:

3 cups all purpose flour

1 cup Bisquick

1 cup milk

1/4 cup sugar

1 stick COLD butter

1/2 cup Crisco (optional)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)

4 teaspoons baking POWDER! (I will admit one time I made scones and I grabbed the baking soda instead of baking powder. Nothing will ever express how nasty they were. My friend from school was way too eager to tell the world of my epic baking failure)

1 large garlic clove (or two smaller ones)

2 tablespoons of rosemary (I used dried)

 

Mince your garlic. I also did a rough chop on the rosemary so it wasn’t like eating pine needles.

In a large bowl combine flour, oats, bisquick, sugar, baking soda, garlic, salt, pepper, and rosemary.

Chop cold butter and Crisco into the dry ingredients with a hand pie crust thing. If you’re crazy, a fork will do just fine. I’ve done it before when a pie crust thing wasn’t available.

Once the butter and Crisco are pea sized pieces, add in the milk. Continue to work through.

Pre-heat your oven to 400

Flour a section of counter and dump the dough out. I cut my batch in half to make it easier to work with. Lightly flour the top of your dough and press with your hands to shape a rectangle about 1/2 of an inch thick. Using a sharp knife cut the dough into squares. Some people make a circle  like a small pie. I’m partial to the triangles myself. I did also sprinkle some additional rosemary on top of each one

Place triangles 1/2 inch apart on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes or until the edges and top start to get brown.

Allow to cool before storing in an air tight container. Feel free to serve these warm, with butter, or on their own.
