Feta & Onion Herbed Scone
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8 scones
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter cut into small cubes
  • ½ cup + 2 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 egg
  • ½ yellow onion, sliced thin
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup feta cheese crumbles
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme
  1. Preheat oven to 425° F.
  2. In a pan over medium low heat add your onions and butter. Stirring every 5 minutes or so until onions begin to brown (and reach desired caramelization. This can take anywhere from 25-40 minutes). Once onions have finished caramelizing, set aside.
  3. In large bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  4. Cut in 6 Tbsp of the butter, and mix with hands (or in a food processor pulse about 6-8 times until butter hasn't fully blended, but little chunks are leftover. This is key to a flaky scone).
  5. Add feta cheese, caramelized onion & fresh thyme.
  6. Pour in the heavy cream and egg, then mix with hands until a dough forms. Roll dough out on a floured surface and form a circle about 1” thick.
  7. Cut your dough into triangles as you would a pizza. Brush the scones with a little heavy cream for a cool matte affect, or brush with egg wash for a shinier look.
  8. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly floured. Place scones on sheet separated 1-2 inches. Bake for roughly 20 minutes or until slightly golden.
  9. Remove scones and let cool.
