It has been 3 years since my last blog post! I’m really amazing at blogging.
I couldn’t sleep this morning, so logically, doing some baking at 5 am was warranted. What did I make? Well, these Turkey and Cheese Scones adapted from A Beautiful Bite.
I realize I could never be a serious food blogger with my iPhone pictures and unflattering kitchen lighting, but these were amazing and I just had to share!
Turkey and Cheese Scones
3 cups of flour (plus some extra for dusting your work surface)
1 Tbsp of baking powder
1 tsp of sea salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp minced dried herbs (I used Penzy’s “Fines Herbes”)
8 Tbsp Coconut Oil softened (you can use butter as well)
1 cup + 1 Tbsp Coconut Milk (you can also use soy, cow, goat, again whatever you have)
1 cup shredded cheese (We had some leftover “Mexican” blend I used)
1/2 of a fist sized onion finely chopped (scallions would be REALLY good in this too)
about 1 cup of diced, thick slice, deli turkey meat (or whatever; bacon, ham, leftover chicken would all work)
Paprika to sprinkle on top
Preheat oven to 400
(I used my kitchen aid, but you could also use a food processor or your hands)
In a bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, herbs/spices. Cut in your coconut oil (or butter).
(At this point I used my mixer with the dough hook attachment and a relatively low speed)
Add milk, mix to combine. If you are using a mixer, continue to kneed with the dough hook, by hand you would turn out onto floured surface and kneed. The dough is soft and will remain this way.
Add meat, cheese, and onions. Kneed until these ingredients are incorporated.
Either directly on a cookie sheet or on a piece of parchment: Shape dough into a circle roughly 9 inches in diameter, and an inch and a half in height. Slice into 8 pieces. (I exploded my circle before baking as shown in the pictures)
Sprinkle with Paprika
Bake for 30 min, should be golden brown.
