Afternoon tea party scone recipes


Rosemary Parmesan Scones


3 tablespoons olive oil

1 large onion chopped

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

3 tablespoons of dry Rosemary

1 ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese

2 cups biscuit baking mix

1 large egg

1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream

3 dried chili peppers crushed (optional if you like heat like I do)


1.       Heat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with oil.

2.       In a small frying pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and chili peppers and sauté for 5 minutes until onions are translucent.

3.       Place 1 cup of the Parmesan cheese and 1 tablespoon of Rosemary in a bowl with biscuit mix.

4.       In a small bowl, with fork, beat egg with 1/3 cup of cream until blended.

5.       Stir onion and egg in with dry mixture until a soft dough forms.

6.       Knead about 10 times and shape into a ball.

7.       Place dough on baking sheet, pat into an 8-inch round.

8.       Cut the dough into 8 slices, not going all the way down to the pan. Brush with remaining cream, sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese and Rosemary.  

9.       Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

10.   Cut through wedges and serve hot.
