These Fresh Herb Scones Make It Easy to Get Your Greens
Made with herbs gathered fresh from your garden and complimented by a dash of curry powder, these fragrant, savory scones (inspired by Gourmet Guerilla) taste perfect with just a little bit of fresh butter and a glass of cold milk.
Simple and tactile (be sure to wear an apron!), making the scones is a fun recipe for kids. The ingredient list is flexible, so encourage kids to take ownership and experiment with different herbs and flavors (like omitting the curry powder and mixing in a bit of honey and fresh lavender instead). Serve the scones at your next tea party, or pack them for lunch the next day.

- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
Preheat the oven to 425ºF while mixing all of the dry ingredients together.
Next, add the wet ingredients. First, slowly mix the buttermilk. Then, add the butter. Using your fingers, break down the butter in the mixture until it is approximately the size of small peas.
Flour or place parchment paper on a baking sheet. Shape the mixture until a ball and then roll out until it is approximately 1″ thick. Using a wet knife, cut the mixture into wedges.
