    Default Pesto scones

    You may be scared off by the whipping cream in this recipe, but don't be! It replaces the fat usually used in scones.
    INGREDIENTS:
    • 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 cups flour
    • 2 tbsp. baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp. salt
    • 1/4 cup chopped pine nuts
    • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1 tsp. dried basil leaves
    • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
    PREPARATION:

    Heat oven to 425 degrees F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat liner. In a large mixing bowl, combine 1-1/4 cups flour, baking powder, salt, pine nuts, cheese and basil. Reserve 1 tsp.of the cream. Add remaining cream to flour mixture and stir just until a soft wet dough forms. Add more flour as needed, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until dough is easy to handle but still still sticky.

    On floured surface, knead dough gently four times. Place dough on cookie sheet and pat to a 7" circle. Cut into 8 wedges, but do not separate wedges. Brush with reserved cream. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire rack to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving. Makes 8 scones.

    I love pesto too, but I tend to avoid green bread. I get my penicillin from the pharmacist like a normal suburbanite.
