Ingredients

Butter

3/4 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt

Caramelized Onions

2 large (2 cups) onions , coarsely chopped

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

Scones

3 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup shredded Cheddar or Gruyere cheese

1/3 cup sliced green onions

2/3 cup buttermilk  

Topping

Buttermilk

Sliced green onions

 

 *Substitute 2 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar and enough milk to equal 2/3 cup. Let stand 5 minutes.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Line baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Caramelize onions by melting 1 tablespoon Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onions, 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 20-30 minutes or until onions are golden brown. (Reduce heat, if necessary, to keep from burning.) Remove from heat; cool completely.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in large bowl. Cut in remaining Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in caramelized onions, cheese and green onions. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.

  5. STEP 5

    Shape dough, on lightly floured surface, into 15-inch log, about 3 inches wide. Cut log into 5 (approximately 3-inch) pieces; cut each piece in half diagonally. Place onto prepared baking sheets. Brush tops with buttermilk; sprinkle with green onion slices.

  6. STEP 6

    Bake 18-20 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown and sides of scones are set.

Tip #1

- Unbaked scones can be frozen up to 3 months. To bake, heat oven to 400°F. Remove scones from freezer; place directly onto parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake 20-22 minutes.

Tip #2

- If dough mixture is dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons buttermilk.
