Scones are a unique baked good that can take on a wide range of flavors. From sweet to savory to a little bit of both, these moist yet crumbly pastries are the perfect addition to any brunch menu. With Easter—the infamous brunch holiday—just around the corner, you can enjoy the terrific taste and texture of cheese scones without sabotaging your weight loss goals.
Our Herb Ricotta Cheese Scones are packed with flavor and fiber, featuring an aromatic, herbaceous blend of rosemary and thyme. They have a whole wheat pastry flour base that comes together with all-purpose flour, baking powder, light butter, part-skim ricotta cheese and reduced fat buttermilk. With a hint of honey and touch of garlic, it’s hard to believe these simple scones fit into your healthy diet!
