Savory Avocado Scones

Savory Avocado Scones

When thinking of Avocados you may not think Avocado Recipes…

Avocados are often used for guacamole and garnish on top of Mexican food, but don’t think that is where they only belong, although I could really go for some chips and guac right about now.

Avocados are wonderful in recipes too.

 

 

 

Begin by mashing the avocado and getting it a bit smooth (some lumps are ok, you don’t need to puree it). Combine the flour, baking powder, salt with avocado and blend with a party cutter. Add milk, eggs cilantro  and cheese (crumbled)

 

I can see the crumbled cheese…oh yummy!

Roll the dough on a floured surface and cut into desired shape. You can pat it into a square and cut the scones into triangles or roll with a floured rolling pin and use a biscuit cutter. My dough was about an inch thick.

 

Place on baking sheet, brush on egg wash (egg white mixed with 1 Tablespoon water) on tops of scones. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Until a toothpick does not come out sticky, but don’t over bake them.

 

 

Serve warm with butter and enjoy!

      Oh yes I’m sure they would be good with parmesan a white cheddar or a very light feta would probably work for a substitution.

          I need help! The avocade isnt mashing too well. I even put it in the blender but i guess it wasnt ripe enough and i was too impatient to try this recipe. So now im stuck with hard avocado flesh. I dont want to mess up the recipe. What should i do? If i put it in fridge will it get soft?

            If the avocado isn’t ripe then it won’t be smooth. If you use a firmer avocado I think once it’s baked it will be fine. Refrigerating avocado will not help it to ripen. It does the opposite. Go ahead and bake the scones and if the flavor or texture isn’t what you’d expect, try again another day with ripe avocados.
