Savory Avocado Scones
  • 1/2 cup California Avocado ( I used 1/2 of a large Reed Avocado)
  • 1/2 cup Cotija Cheese (It's a hard Mexican Cheese)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh Cilantro
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg white for egg wash on top
  • 2 Cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. 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)
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
