Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 3/4 teaspoons baking powder (*Ensure it’s fresh for optimal rise)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt (Adjust if using regular salt)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small chunks
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup feta, crumbled
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream, plus a few tablespoons for brushing
  • Fresh cracked pepper for finishing

Instructions

Step 1: Preparing the Dough

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  3. Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to incorporate the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Gently fold in the chopped spinach and crumbled feta, ensuring an even distribution.
  5. Pour in the heavy cream and stir until just combined. Do not overmix; the dough should be slightly sticky.

Step 2: Shaping the Scones

  1. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Pat it into a 1-inch thick rectangle.
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into equal triangles or use a round cutter for a more traditional scone shape.
  3. Place the shaped scones on the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between each.

Step 3: Baking

  1. Brush the tops of the scones with a little heavy cream for a golden finish.
  2. Sprinkle fresh cracked pepper on each scone for an extra burst of flavor.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the scones are golden brown on top.

Cook Notes and Variations

  • Herb Infusion: Add a tablespoon of fresh herbs such as chopped chives or dill to the dough for an herbal twist.
  • Nuts for Nuttiness: Enhance the texture by folding in a handful of chopped nuts like walnuts or pine nuts.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q1: Can I make the dough ahead of time and bake later?

Absolutely! Prepare the dough, shape the scones, and freeze them. When ready to bake, simply place the frozen scones on a baking sheet and bake as directed, adding a few extra minutes to the baking time.

Q2: Can I use frozen spinach?

While fresh spinach is recommended for its vibrant flavor, you can use frozen spinach. Ensure it’s thawed, drained, and squeezed of excess moisture before adding it to the dough.

Q3: How do I store leftover scones?

Store any uneaten scones in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two days. For longer storage, freeze the scones and reheat as needed.
