Scones are one of the English recipes that I love the most: easy to make but always delicious!

These are savoury with an Italian twist: I added some Gorgonzola cheese and crunchy walnut pieces and I served them with a slice of pear, a piece of cheese and a little honey…so yummy!!!

Gorgonzola and walnut scones

Prep Time:15 minutes
Cook Time:12 minutes
Servings:8/10 scones

Ingredients

  • For the dough
  • plain flour: 240 grams
  • big egg: 1
  • butter cold cut into small pieces: 80 grams
  • Gorgonzola cheese cut into small cubes: 60 grams
  • walnut kernels roughly chopped: 50 grams
  • baking powder: 2 tsp
  • whole milk: 80/90 grams
  • salt: 2 grams
  • milk for brushing
  • To serve
  • gorgonzola or Brie: 200 grams
  • pears: 2
  • honey (as needed)
  • butter (as needed)

Instructions

  1. Put the flour, baking powder, salt and butter into a big bowl and start rubbing the ingredients with your fingertips. Once the mixture resembles rough breadcrumbs add the gorgonzola, the walnuts and the beaten egg, mix a little then start adding the milk and knead until you have a firm dough: don't overwork it, just knead to bring together the ingredients.
  2. Transfer the dough on a floured surface and pat it out with the hands to about 2,5 cm thick. Using a 5 cm round cutter cut out the scones without twisting the cutter otherwise the scones won't rise.
  3. Put the scones on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, brush the top with a little milk and bake into the preheated oven at 180ºC fan for about 12 minutes or until the scones rise and are golden.
