30min serves 10-12


  • Preheat the oven to 375° F.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk and set aside. In a larger mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, Za’atar, garlic granules, salt and sugar.

  • Add in the butter and use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the flour, leaving it in pea sized chinks. Add in the Tillamook Maker’s Reserve 2015 White Cheddar Cheese and mix well.

  • Add the buttermilk and egg mixture a little at a time and mix until just combined. The dough should not be too wet.

  • Flour your counter and place the dough on the counter. Bring any loose bits of flour into the remainder of the dough, and pat the dough into a rectangle 3/4 inches thick. Use a 2.5 inch biscuit cutter to cut the scones. Gently reroll any scraps and cut the remainder of the dough into scone shapes.  

  • Place the scones onto 2 parchment lined baking trays. Brush the tops with any leftover buttermilk, and sprinkle more Za’atar over top.

  • Bake the scones until they are lightly golden on top and medium golden on the bottom, about 20 minutes. Enjoy with softened butter and honey!
