December is here my friends. And that for us in New Zealand means it is the beginning of summer. However, summer is not yet to be found. All we have seen is grey clouds and rain. This has inspired me to create some comforting snacks such as these lovely rustic spring onion and veggie scones. These scones are a little bit unconventional. With a Serbian twist if you like. With the spring onion, red bell pepper, ham, cheese and the secret star (mayonnaise) these scones are something different.

You may ask why rustic? Well, because there are no rules in shaping the scones into their traditional shape here. These are really easy to make. You can whip up the recipe in one bowl, spoon them out onto a baking sheet and bake. So if you are a savoury fan, these scones are perfect for you.

SPRING ONION AND VEGGIE SCONES

This recipe makes a batch of 6 or 8 scones. This will depend on how big you choose your scones to be.

These scones are also very versatile as you can easily make ingredient swaps. I have decided to use spring onions and red bell peppers because they give the scones an amazing aroma and taste. You will be surprised how well spring onions work in this recipe. As for the ham and cheese, well they are just a standard for scone making 😊. This recipe also calls for mayonnaise. This is not quiet traditional in scones but trust me, it adds great flavour and allows the scones to be light and fluffy.

A FEW NOTES ON MAKING THESE SCONES

  • Shaping the Scones – this recipe does not require that you shape the scones in any shape. Simply use a tablespoon to scoop out a heaped tablespoon of the mixture and place on a baking sheet. This gives them a unique “rustic” look.
  • Serving – these scones are really great when dipped in a side of mayonnaise or a relish.
  • Storage – these scones are best enjoyed the day they are made but can be wrapped and stored at room temperature for two days.
  • Freezing – Freeze leftover scones in an airtight storage container for up to one month. When you are ready to eat them, simply allow them to thaw and re-heat.
