Organic Rosemary and Parmesan Cheese Scones

Rosemary adds an herby goodness to these savory organic Parmesan cheese scones.





Use organic ingredients where possible.

  • 2 12 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Simply Organic® Rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 egg
  • 12 cup whole milk + 1 tablespoon (optional)
  • Extra Parmesan cheese and Simply Organic® Rosemary (for garnish, optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, cheese, sugar, rosemary and baking powder. Whisk together.
  3. Add butter. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the cubes resemble coarse crumbs.
  4. In a small bowl, beat the egg and milk together. Pour egg and milk into the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined.
  5. With your hands, bring the dough together into a ball. On a piece of wax parchment paper, place the dough and using your fingers, push the dough outward into a circle until an inch-high patty forms.
  6. With a knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough into eight slices as though cutting a pizza or pie.
  7. With a pastry brush, brush the optional 1 tablespoon milk over the scones. Separate the scones on the parchment paper.
  8. On a baking stone or cookie sheet, place the parchment (and scones).
  9. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes. Five minutes before removing the scones from the oven, garnish the tops with a few sprinkles of dried rosemary and Parmesan cheese.

Chef Suggestions

  • Substitute freshly grated Asiago for the Parmesan, if desired.
  • Substitute low-fat dairy or almond milk for the whole milk, if desired.
