Hello! I hope all is well. It’s been a few days since I’ve said hello on here and so I thought I’d take the time to sit down and say hi – and share a little recipe too. This week I’ve helped some friends move, volunteered at the school, watched a few soccer games, and spent a little extra time with the family. We dug out all of our Halloween decorations and the kids carved pumpkins. We played some board games like Scrabble and baked bread together. After such a busy month in September I’m happy to have a slightly slower October.
Emma has already came up with her Halloween costume. She found an adorable black dress that works perfect for a witches dress and she’s going to wear it with boots and a hat. Noah is still indecive on what he will be, and Anika? Well, she’s so busy trying to figure out what to wear for the Halloween themed Homecoming dance this Friday that I doubt she’s even thought much about the actual holiday!
This next week we’ll begin filling our hundreds of trick or treat bags for all of the ghosts and goblins that will arrive on the 31st, and we’ll wrap up the soccer season. Next up: basketball and wrestling.
With the fall weather settling in I’m finding myself wanting to do more baking, so I thought I’d share a little recipe with you. I made these cheesy green onion scones for the first time back during the day of the solar eclipse in August (along with this red onion jam).
I hadn’t made very many scones before, and never realized just how easy they were to make. These are perfect to have on hand for a party platter or brunch. They are so much more buttery tasting than most store bought scones. Nothing beats homemade, right?
How to Make Cheesey Green Onion Scones
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup cold butter
- 2 Tablespoons sliced green onions
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup heavy cream
Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.
In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder, and salt.
Dice the cold butter up and mix in with a fork or pastry cutter until the dough is combined.
Mix in the cheese and green onions.
Make a well into the dough and slowly add the heavy cream.
Place the dough onto a lightly floured cutting board and form into a round disk. Cut the disk into quarters, then shape each quarter into a round and gently flatten with your hands.
Wrap each round in plastic wrap and refrigerate for approximately 30 minutes.
Cut each round into 6 wedges. Place the scones onto a baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes, or until lightly golden.
Store remaining scones in the refrigerator.
