Goat Cheese Thyme Scones

Goat cheese thyme scones. Okay, so I needed to separate all of these scone recipes…I have too many, but also there are never too many scones. The base for all of these is by far my favorite. I really have become a scone snob and I hope these live up to the hype for you too. And if you are feeling a little wild, feel free to throw a scone party and try them all!

Favorite tool for making scones is a cheese grater for the butter, here is a good one with the large whole size for cutting up the butter as needed!

Makes 8 scones per recipe

Ingredients for Goat Cheese Thyme Scones:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ cup sugar (only 1 tablespoon for goat cheese & thyme)
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, cold
  • 2 Tablespoons thyme
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • ½ cup + 2 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 egg

How to make scones:

  1. Preheat oven to 425° F, prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly flour one.
  2. In large bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  3. Cut in the butter (use cheese grater to make this easier), the mixture needs to be a little chunky, not smooth. Add in thyme and goat cheese. Mix.
  4. Pour in the heavy cream and egg, mix with hands until a dough forms. Roll dough out on a floured surface and form a circle about 1” thick.
  5. Cut your dough into triangles as you would a pizza with a pizza cutter (or use cookie cutter to make shapes). Brush the scones with a little heavy cream. Sprinkle with a little salt on top.
  6. Place scones on prepared sheet separated 1-2 inches. Bake for roughly 20 minutes or until slightly golden.
  7. Remove scones and let cool.

Notes

– Butter: Should be super cold. You can cut this up with a knife or the easiest way is to use a cheese grater.
– Flavors: if these aren’t your flavor choices, check out other scone recipes on my site by typing in “scone” in the search bar.
– American scones: these are American, not English scones, so more crumbly than biscuity.
– Shapes: You can slice these with a pizza cutter into triangles or a cookie cutter for circles or other shapes, just be careful of the bake time.
