    Rosemary. An herb like no other. 🌿

    1. I find myself walking by the plant and just touching it to release the aroma. So lovely.

    Dot, Rosemary is my favorite herb also. I have never attempted scones but with rosemary and goat cheese, I might just get my flour out. Thanks for the directions. You make it look easy.

    1. Thanks! They really are easy and quick to put together, not many dishes!

  4. Sheree says:

    These look delicious

    1. Thank you my friend!

  5. I can smell them from here, the aroma in your kitchen must have been heaven! Square scones were quite common in my childhood. My gran and I just loved warm scones with butter and a slice of cheddar. Thank you for the beautiful memories.

    1. Thank you so much. Mom liked square scones and biscuits too, for the same reason, no waste! No re-rolls!

    Thank you, Dorothy, for your lovely scones! I love goat cheese, grow my herbs, and scones are perfect when a visitor calls as they are so quick to make.


    1. A half hour and you have a tantalizing, warm scone to serve your guests, or family!

  7. Forestwood says:

    I’m constantly impressed by the variations of dishes you come up with, Dorothy . This recipe sounds tantalising and I’m glad you call it scones as I was led to believe they were called biscuits in America. Mind you when it’s a big triangle wedge like this, we might call it a damper. Whatever its name is it looks yummy.

    1. A damper! I love that hame and will have to remember it.
      There’s always that arguing line over what is a scone and what is a biscuit. My mom’s biscuits never included eggs, but her scones usually did. I guess that is where I make my distinction these days.

      1. Forestwood says:

        You are right about the eggs being different in different recipes – I don’t put any eggs in my scones.

  8. Your savory scones sound wonderful Dorothy, I adore fresh rosemary~

    1. Isn’t it the most wonderful aroma? Can’t walk by without touching it.

  9. looking good!

    1. Many thinks! We liked them a lot.

  10. NativeNM says:

    I love your savory scones. They would go deliciously with any soup!

    1. I’m thinking of topping them with some mushroom gravy next. Sound good?

  11. Beautifil savory scones.

  12. Love love savory scones!! These looks divine Dorothy! I look forward to making them soon.

    1. Thank you! They were quite tasty with the goat cheese.

  13. Carole Renca says:

    Hello Dorothy! I love scones and yours look great. Thanks for the vegan butter option. I already use oat milk. Your rosemary plants are huge!!! I am so jealous! Looking forward to reading your holiday posts. 🙂

    1. Thank you! I guess it was all the rain this year that encouraged so much growth, and I’ve used many stems throughout the summer.

  14. Suzassippi says:

    I see you…does this mean I can have a scone? These are so pretty and I love the combo of rosemary and goat cheese.

    1. Yes my friend, you get a scone for spotting the blogger! Good work.

  15. Marilyn from marilyndishes says:

    I love a good scone and these look great!

    1. Thank you Marilyn! I was pleased how these turned out.

  16. Very nice, I’ll bet they taste great

    1. Thank you! They were quite delicious!

  17. All of the ingredients that I love in one recipe. Thank you for sharing this!

    1. I’m so glad you are pleased! Love those flavors too!

  18. Chef Mimi says:

    Oh I bet these are good! I can smell them!

    1. The house smelled great! The aroma always lets you know they are ready.

  19. Oh, Dorothy, these look delicious. I love rosemary plants, but I’m not a big indoor plant person and for sure they won’t make it through the winter outside. Hope yours provides lots of good taste for this and future recipes.

    1. I hope so too! Rosemary has a habit of not thriving indoors in my house during its winter vacation!

    1. Word Press has had a few gremlins again! The happiness engineers must be busy!
      Thank you for your kind words!

  22. I was going to sit here and read for an hour, but no, now I have to go to the grocery store for goat cheese! These look fabulous Dorothy. The recipe is printing as I type! I believe this will be dinner tonight. So good. Thank you. Hugs, C

    1. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do! Let me know.

    These look so very very more-ish!

    1. Oh yes! One more sounds good!

    I agree with Forestwood – this is closer to Australian damper, as popular as savoury scones here! My very favourite herbs are dill and coriander (cilantro) which I grow in big pots behind the kitchen door and use by the handful ! . Am hugely lucky as can leave all my herb pots outside throughout the year bar basil which gets winter warmth on the kitchen window sill. Am lucky with goats cheeses as a number of makers bring theirs to the local farmers markets.

    1. Sounds like you have all the makings for a great batch of dampers!
      I love dill as well. My aunt had a fabulous stand of wild dill around her house that self seeded each year. She was known for her dill bread and pickles of course!

  25. terrie gura says:

    You had me at goat cheese. And rosemary. And scones! Hahaha

    Talk to me about the corn starch. I’ve never heard about this before as a way to tame whole wheat, but I’m intrigued!

    1. My mom always replaced a bit of the flour with cornstarch, usually a quarter cup. The cornstarch has no gluten so I think that is why it aided in the tenderness. Cornstarch is also used in cake flour to lighten the texture of the baked goods, so it stands to reason.

  26. Sherry Mackay says:

    yes i like the wedge method of cutting too tho my mum used to make the round ones !

    1. The wedge is way easier in my opinion!

  27. Oh boy, these look and sound delicious!

    1. They are pretty darn good, and great toasted the next day too!

      1. I’m officially hungry now!

  28. This recipe sounds so very intriguing and yes, to butter and honey drizzled on top!

    1. You have to give them a little garnish, right?

    With our weather warming up this recipe will sit comfortably waiting for its entrance next year – can I wait?
    Huh… probably not. It sounds so good.
    I love your tips re: The way to roll them out. I’ll take that onboard, for sure…

    1. We had snow flurries today, spring is a long ways off for us. But, scones can be always present!

        “But, scones can be always present!”
        If ever there was permission given – you’ve given it…. 😂

  31. lisinmayenne says:

    Cheese scones are one of my favourite comfort foods on Earth, preferably hot from the oven with lashings of creamy butter. The goat’s cheese and rosemary add a delightful twist!

    1. Thank you Lis! As the weather turns, these little delights warm from the oven are a treat indeed.

  32. Christy B says:

    I didn’t know the change of flour could make such a difference ~ Good you experimented and found that out ~ You’re always sharing such helpful tips. These sound and look amazing 😋

    1. Thank you! I was delighted by the texture of these, nice and light and jut the right crumb.

  33. nancyc says:

    Yum! I love the combination of rosemary and goat cheese! These scones look so good!

    1. This was really a winner, and they tasted great toasted the next day as well.

  34. What a great combination Dorothy, they look so moist too.

    1. The goat cheese kept these really moist!

  35. What an interesting combination of flavors! They look super tasty!

    1. They were so good, I need to make them again!
