Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk the buttermilk and egg and set aside.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and rosemary in a large food processor and pulse to combine. While the food processor is running, stream in the rosemary-infused olive oil and then the buttermilk & egg mixture and continue to process until just combined. The mixture should be a little wet and should pull away from the sides.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until the dough is uniform and is no longer sticky; it shouldn't take more than 4-5 turns. Shape the dough in to a circle, about 8 inches in diameter. Cut into 8 slices, as if you are cutting a pizza.
  4. Place the slices onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between the scones. Bake in the 400 degree oven for 16-18 minutes until the bottoms are golden brown and the scones are puffy.
  5. Cool on a wire wrack or serve warm.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Cut all large brussels sprouts in half.
  3. Place all ingredients into a ziplock bag. Then shake and toss until there is an even coating. Spread the coated brussel sprouts out on a baking sheet and place on a middle rack.
  4. Bake at 425 for 30 minutes. At the 15 min. mark flip each sprout to brown each side. Parts of them will turn brown and black when they are properly roasted.
Recipe Notes

TIP: Often there will be loose leaves after shaking. Stack all the loose ones on top of each other in a pile on a corner of the pan. The bottom ones will burn but the others turn into dark crispy chips that are great texture & flavor to add to dinner salads or as a snack.

  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flours through the herbs. Using either a pastry cutter or your hands, work the olive oil into the flour.
  3. Make a well in the center of the flour and add the buttermilk or milk mixture. Stir just to combine. Don’t overwork it. It’s fine if you see some specks of flour.
  4. Let the dough sit for a few minutes, then using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop the dough out onto a parchment lined baking sheet spacing them out about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake for about 12 minutes. Check them early…they should be just golden on top.
