I’m willing to do that for these scones. Since baking does scare me quite a bit, I’m pretty proud that I pulled these off. They’re yummy, perfectly flaky, and savory with just a little sweetness.
Gruyere, Apple, and Sage Scones
Just the Tip / Inspired by Goodlife Eats
Here’s what I used:
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 tsp fine sea salt
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 cup very cold (or frozen) butter, grated on a box grater
- 3 large eggs, divided
- 1/4 cup buttermilk, plus extra for egg wash
- 2 apples, grated
- 3 tsp finely minced sage
- 1/3 cup diced or shredded gruyere cheese
Here’s what I did:
- Preheat oven to 375. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add the grated butter and combine with the flour mixture. Stir in the sage, grated apple, and cheese.
- In a smaller bowl, whisk together eggs and the buttermilk.
- Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the egg mixture and stir until it comes together. Turn out to a floured surface and knead until it comes together. Split into two balls and roll out into 2 8″ circles (roughly).
- Cut into triangles and dust the tops with a little flour. Place the scones flour-side down on the baking sheet.
- Whisk the last egg in a small bowl with 1 tbsp buttermilk and brush the scones with the egg wash.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
