Soft with the delicious flavor of Gruyère cheese, these miniature savory dinner scones are easy to make and are a great addition to any kind of meal or a nice snack just on their own
- 1 cup spelt flour or unbleached white flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 tablespoons cold butter
- 2/3 cup Gruyère cheese, grated
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt or milk
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat an oven to 425°.
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter in using a pastry cutter or a knife and fork until the butter is reduced to small crumbs. Add the cheese and parsley, and stir to combine. Mix in the milk or yogurt and stir until a soft dough forms.
Lightly flour a large cutting board, turn the dough out and divide in half. Lightly knead each half a few times and then flour your hands and pat each portion of the dough into a small round that is roughly 3/4-inch thick. Cut each round into 6 to 8 wedges and transfer to the prepared baking sheet, leaving about an inch between each wedge.
Bake in the oven until the tops turn a light golden brown — about 10 to 12 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. They can be reheated in foil in the oven at a low heat before serving if desired.
