Savory Honey Scones

Makes 16 Scones


2-1/4 teaspoons rosemary, finely chopped and divided

1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour

1-1/3 cups semolina

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

6 ounces soft goat cheese

1/4 cup honey

1/2 cup heavy cream, divided

1 egg


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix 2 teaspoons rosemary with all the other dry ingredients. Add goat cheese to the dry ingredients and set aside. Whisk together honey, half the cream, and egg. Stir this mixture into the dry ingredients until a soft dough forms.

Form the dough into a ball. Turn out onto a floured surface and separate the dough into 2 equal portions and pat each portion into a circle about 3/4 inch thick. Cut into 8 wedges. Separate and arrange wedges on a baking sheet.

Brush tops with remaining cream and sprinkle with remaining rosemary. Place in oven and bake 1o to 12 minutes or until golden brown. It is yummy to serve these with butter, honey, and/or softened goat cheese.
