What You'll Need

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or dried rosemary
  • 1/3 cup kalamata or ripe black olives, chopped
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Stir together first 4 ingredients in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 forks until mixture is crumbly. Stir in rosemary and olives. Gradually add buttermilk to flour mixture, stirring with a fork just until ingredients are moistened. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times.
  2. Pat dough into an 8-inch circle on a lightly greased baking sheet. Cut into 8 wedges, using a sharp knife. (Do not separate wedges.) Brush with olive oil, and sprinkle with black pepper.
  3. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until light golden. Serve warm.


Black olives and rosemary flavor these savory scones. Serve them alongside your meal-especially soups or stews-or by themselves for a snack.
