TomaRashi & Butternut Squash Scones

 

 

Butternut Squash and TomaRashi Scones

Makes 8 scones

 

2 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

½ teaspoon kosher salt

6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes

½ cup butternut squash puree*

⅓ cup + 2 tablespoons heavy cream, divided

2 large eggs

4 ounces TomaRashi, cut into small cubes

 

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. 

 

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.  Add butter, and work it into the flour using a pastry cutter or your fingers until butter chunks are the size of peas. 

 

In a separate bowl, whisk together squash, ⅓ cup heavy cream and eggs.  Pour into flour mixture along with the TomaRashi, folding gently with a spatula.  When dough begins to come together, gather it into a ball with your hands and transfer it to a floured work surface. 

 

Using your hands, pat the dough into a 6” circle. With a pastry scraper or large chef’s knife, cut into 8 triangles.

 

Place scones on prepared sheet pan about 1 inch apart. Brush the tops with remaining 2 tablespoons cream. 

 

Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through, until golden brown.

 

* To make squash puree, simply puree cooked squash in a food processor until smooth.  Do not add liquid to the puree, as this will make your scone dough too wet.
