Whole-grain Parmesan Scones with Smoked Salmon and Arugula


I made these scones a while ago, some time in the summer I think. Ever since, the picture was just kinda sitting on Flickr, minding its own business and awaiting a brighter future.  When Maja of Cooks and Bakes decided to make whole-grain flour the key ingredient for this month’s challenge of Ajme, koliko nas je!, I thought I’d pull it out and make an honest recipe of it. So, here it goes…

  • 2 cups whole-grain flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup  cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 385°F ( 200°C). Combine flour, salt and baking powder. Add butter in cubes and work it into the flour with your fingers until crumbs form.  Mix in the grated parmesan and the egg and milk mixture. Don’t be tempted to overmix, the dough should appear clumpy.  Roll it out onto a floured surface to a 1.5 inch  (cca. 4 cm ) thickness. Cut out rounds or squares and place them on parchment paper. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden.

Serve with cream cheese, jam, or in my case some smoked salmon and arugula for a Sunday brunch or an afternoon snack.

Dobar tek!
