Mini Savoury Buttermilk Mint Scone

What do you do when you runs out of buttermilk? Ahhhh, simple.... just go and get one from your nearby supermarket, right! But I'm not that lucky! There's no way I can get buttermilk here (I mean around my living area). I'm glad there's still something what we call homemade buttermilk. ^_^ And I am making these scones with my first batch of homemade buttermilk. yay.... The recipe is shown as below this page.

So, here we go!

Ingredients for scone dough :
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tspn salt
1 tbsp baking powder
110gm cold butter, cubed
3/4 cup homemade buttermilk
1/4 cup chopped sausage
handful of mint leaves
*shredded cheddar cheese for topping

Method :
(1) blend together milk and mint leaves.
(2) combine flour, baking powder and salt in a big bowl.
(3) add in butter and rub in using fingertips untill combined.
(4) stir in milk mixture and chopped sausage to form a sticky dough.

(5) place soft dough onto a floured working table.
(6) press dough into 2cm thick and divide dough by using cutting mould.
(7) brush on egg glaze and top with shredded cheese.
(8) bake at 200'c for about 15-20 mins or untill golden brown.
Oh my, these babies are HOT! Super love the minty and cheesy aroma. Just add in an extra spread of butter. Perfectly yummmm...... I am trying to imagine if there's a scoop of hot mashed potatoes in the middle of these scones. Oooo...... lala.... *slurp* Frankly, Scones aren't something popular here in Malaysia especially small places like this. And I'm glad scone making isn't complicated at all. It is best to prepare this an hour before tea time so that you can have them straight from the oven. And I love them sweet or savoury! Hope you all will love it too. Enjoy!

Can anyone tell me is this the right texture????
Ingredients for buttermilk :
2 cups full cream milk
2 tbsp vinegar/lemon juice

Method :
(1) boil milk over low heat for about 10mins, the most 20mins.
(2) then add in lemon juice/vinegar and off the heat immediately.
(3) leave the milk aside for 15 mins at room temperature.
(4) the milk will begin to curdle a bit, as shown in the above picture.
(5) and it's ready to use in any recipes.

petite nyonya said...

oohh..these heartshape scones are lovely and the best part is these are savory scones! great idea, kristy! i got leftover frozen buttermilk in my freezer and may just use it for this recipe :)

Wai Kitt said...

Really thanks for the homemade buttermilk recipe, must copy it down first. There is no buttermilk sell in my place too so normally i was using evaporated milk instead only.

Peanutts said...

hey kristy:), those are perfect looking scones, all nicely risen :). cute heart shape, have a nice day

Heavenly Housewife said...

great job on making your own butter milk for the scones. It looks like they turned out perfect.
*kisses* HH

Blessed Homemaker said...

I never buy buttermilk, always use homemade ones too. But I don't cook the milk and lemon juice, I just mix them together and let it stand for 10 mins before using.

Jet said...

I never tried scones with mint. I shall bookmark this recipe and try it :). Thanks for sharing.

Fimère said...

ils sont très beaux, en plus le babeurre apporte une certaine légèreté à la texture qui est vraiment irrésistible
j'aime beaucoup
bonne journée

Dimah said...

Those sound wonderful!Great photos!

divya said...

Looks so tempting my dear:)

denise @ quickies on the dinner table said...

Very pretty scones Kristy - love the heart shape :) Savoury scones are as yummy as sweet or plain ones!

If you cannot get buttermilk, you can use cultured milk like Yakult but of course this won't work well for savoury scones like this one. Or you can just add lemon juice to the milk and leave it aside until it curdles then filter and use the liquid or just use all of it, unfiltered.

The texture of your buttermilk looks about right as buttermilk is supposed to be quite watery.

Very pretty scones Kristy - love the heart shape :) Savoury scones are as yummy as sweet or plain ones!

If you cannot get buttermilk, you can use cultured milk or any milk processed with additional lactic acid, like Yakult but of course this won't work well for savoury scones like this one as Yakult is sweet. Or you can just add lemon juice to the milk and leave it aside until it curdles then filter and use the liquid or just use all of it, unfiltered.

MaryMoh said...

Beautiful scones. Look soft and delicious. I love homemade scones. Would love to make some, too.

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

Gorgeous scones! They must taste so good.



Barbara said...

Love the cheddar topping, Kristy. And the mint is such an interesting ingredient in a scone!

Otehlia said...

They look and sound great! I don't think I'll ever get over how beautiful your food looks.

pigpigscorner said...

I tried making buttermilk once too but found it thin as compared to store-bought ones. The texture of the store-bought ones is like yogurt.

My Little Space said...

Mary Moh : Thank you. Will write later!

Rosa : Thanks!

Barbara : I think works terrific in there. Hope you will like it too! Thank you.

Othelia : Hi there, nice for having you here with us. Thank you so much for your nice comment. So sweet of you.

Pigpigcorner : Yeah, that's what I'm thinking! But the homemade ones work pretty good as well. Some other time I used yoghurt to replace buttermilk!

Thanks alot everyone for your super cool comment and thank you for visiting. Hope you're all having a wonderful day.

Cheers, Kristy

Anna said...

Hi Kristy, First... loved the fall theme in the background. Now to the scone babies Awwwwwwww...they look so darling. Loved the mint addition, must smell fantastic. usually when I can't find buttermilk I use yogurt. But your idea of making your own is awesome.

Drick said...

looks so good - love the bits of cheese on top and the addition of mint ... buttermilk makes things taste so much different / and better...

5 Star Foodie said...

Such unique scones - a terrific idea to use mint!

Lyndsey said...

Oh man! I can't believe I missed this! I hate it when I miss one of your posts and all your goodies. I love the little heart shaped scones. Do you believe that scones are on my list of what I want to try to bake? hehe! Thanks for linking it to Tailgating Time!! You're the best!! Cheers!

Martha (MM) said...
