Caramelized Onions

1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt

2 large (2 cups) onions, sliced into 1/8-inch slices

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper


3 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2/3 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt

1 cup shredded Cheddar or Gruyère cheese

1/3 cup sliced green onions

2/3 cup buttermilk  



 *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

    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, 30-40 minutes or until onions are golden brown and reduced to 1/2 cup. (Reduce heat, if necessary, to keep from burning.) Remove from heat; cool completely. Coarsley chop onions; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt and baking soda in large bowl. Cut in 2/3 cup 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 2/3 cup buttermilk just until moistened.

  4. STEP 4

    Pat dough into 8-inch circle. Cut into 8 wedges. Place onto prepared baking sheets. Brush tops with buttermilk.

  5. STEP 5

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

Tip #1

If onions are overbrowning and sticking to pan, deglaze with 2-4 tablespoons chicken broth as onions are cooking.

Tip #2

- 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 #3

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