#ISW – Spinach and feta scones

Last week, in anticipation of International Scone Week, I made up and tried out this delicious spinach and feta scone recipe.

Ingredients

450 grams self-raising flour

100 grams cubed butter

225 grams crumbled feta cheese

5 ml ground black pepper

150 grams cooked and drained spinach, chopped

120 ml milk

120 ml water

Method

Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius.

Boil the spinach in salted water and drain. Chop into small pieces. Sift the flour into a bowl and rub in the butter until it forms crumbs. Add the crumbed feta, the black pepper and the spinach. Mix. Add the milk and water and mix until a soft, sticky dough forms. Pat onto a floured surface until you have a round of doughy mixture about 1.5 cm thick. Cut into rounds using a cookie cutter. Place onto a prepared baking tray and brush with milk using a pastry brush. Bake for 15 minutes until the top is golden.

Serve with a little butter.

  1. I arrived late to Feta…perhaps I didn’t love a greek salad for a long time, but once I realized what I was missing, I made up for it! I love the salty tartness of Feta, and have a large container in the refrigerator, the square block submerged for use whenever I have the urge…this recipe will be the next time I use it!
