Rosemary adds an herby goodness to this savory Parmesan cheese scones recipe.


  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

    1 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated, plus more for garnish

    3 tablespoons sugar

    2 tablespoons Simply Organic Rosemary, plus more for garnish

    1 tablespoon baking powder

    6 tablespoons cold butter, cubed

    1 egg

    1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon whole milk


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    2. In a large bowl, combine flour, Parmesan cheese, sugar, rosemary and baking powder. Whisk until well combined.

    3. Use a pastry cutter or clean hands to cut butter into the dry ingredients until coarse crumbs form.

    4. In a small bowl, combine egg and 1/2 cup milk. Beat until well blended, then pour into the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined.

    5. Use clean hands to form a ball out of the dough. On a piece of wax parchment paper, place dough and use your fingertips to push the dough outward into a circle until an inch-high patty forms.

    6. Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut the dough into 8 slices as though cutting a pizza or pie.

    7. Use a pastry brush to brush remaining 1 tablespoon milk over the scones. Separate the scones on the parchment paper.

    8. On a baking stone or baking sheet, place parchment paper and scones.

    9. Bake for 11 minutes, garnish scones with a few sprinkles of rosemary and Parmesan cheese, then bake for 5 to 7 more minutes.

    Recipe Tip: 

    If desired, substitute freshly grated Asiago cheese for the Parmesan.
