Caraway-Dill Scones
Yield: 18 scones
Write a review
  1. 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  3. ¼ teaspoon salt
  4. ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  5. ¼ cup unsalted butter, well chilled and diced
  6. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  7. 2½ teaspoons caraway seeds, divided
  8. 1 teaspoon dried dill
  9. ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  10. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add fresh dill, 2 teaspoons caraway seeds, and dried dill, stirring to combine. Gradually add cream, stirring until mixture just comes together.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 3/4-inch thickness. Using a 11/2x3/4-inch leaf-shaped cutter, cut as many scones as possible. Repeat, re-rolling scraps once.
  4. Place scones on prepared baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush tops of scones with olive oil. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds over tops of scones.
  5. Bake until light golden brown, approximately 12 to 15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
