Savory Scones with Caramelized Onions and Prosciutto

These savory scones are studded with caramelized onions and prosciutto. Enjoy them with a bowl of soup, on the side of some scrambled eggs, or just on their own.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup caramelized onions Here's how to make them
  • 1/4 cup prosciutto, cut into thin slivers

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a food processor fitted with the dough hook, a pastry cutter or two knives, work in the butter. The butter pieces should be pea-sized by the time you are done.
  3. Work in the milk and egg until the dough is shaggy and there are almost no dry spots left. Be careful not to overwork the dough.
  4. Fold in the caramelized onions and prosciutto.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a clean, dry surface and press it into a 3/4"-thick rectangle. Slice into 2" squares. Space the scones 1 1/2" apart on a greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 400F for 13-16 minutes, until the tops are firm and beginning to turn golden-brown. Allow to cool on the pan for a minute or two before transferring the scones from the pan to a cooling rack.

  Savory Scones with Caramelized Onions and Pancetta | Savvy Eats I’m keeping it brief today, because my mom is here for a visit (three cheers for mom!).  But can somebody please explain to me why I have never made savory scones?  Seriously, they might be my new favorite thing.  I may even like them more than sweet scones, and I never thought that would happen. In fairness, it might be because they are studded with chopped prosciutto and caramelized onions, and those two mix-ins could probably make even cardboard taste appealing. But these scones are far from cardboard – they are buttery and tender, and do well on their own or with a bowl of soup. I can’t wait to play with some more flavor combinations!
