Bite-sized scones with green olives and Provence herbs


Those tiny, savory scones make a great appetizer alternative. The recipe comes from one of Trish Deseine’s books, and it is the only one I have been making since. It is almost perfect: the dough is smooth and real easy to work with. You can cut it with a cookie cutter and then give your scones fancy shapes. Provence herbs (thyme, marjoram, rosemary, tarragon, fennel, chervil) and green olives give a summery feel to these scones and with the temperatures drowning, it is really nice!

For approximately 40 mini scones, you’ll need:

  • 250 grams all-purpose flour,
  • 30 grams sugar,
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder,
  • 60 grams cold butter, cut into dices,
  • 40 grams grated Parmesan cheese,
  • 15 cl. milk,
  • 3 tablespoons chopped green olives,
  • 2 teaspoons Provence herbs.

Preheat oven to 180°C.  

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and baking powder. Stir in the butter by rubbing the mixture between your fingers until it looks like breadcrumbs.

Add parmesan and milk, a little at a time, and mix to form a soft dough. Finally add the chopped olives and the herbs. Knead well, adding flour if needed.

Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to 2 centimeters in thickness. Cut small shapes with a cookie cutter. Place scones onto a baking sheet and brush tops with milk. Place in the oven for 7 minutes.
