- 2 cups of all-purpose flour
- 2 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
- 2 teaspoons of dried Italian herb seasoning
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- 1 ¼ cups of crispy fried onions
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 cup of olive oil
- 3 tablespoons of milk
- 1/3 cup of fresh chopped parsley leaves
- Make sure the oven is first preheated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
- Whisk the flour, baking powder, Italian herb seasoning, and salt together in a large bowl.
- Crumble 1 cup of the crispy fried onions, and stir them in.
- Add in the egg, olive oil, milk, and chopped parsley leaves.
- Gently stir all of the ingredients until they’re only just blended.
- Place the resulting dough onto a surface that’s been lightly floured.
- Shape the dough into a circle that’s about 6 ½ inches in diameter, and ¾-inch thick.
- Press ¼ cup of fried, not crumbled onions onto the top of the dough.
- Cut the dough into 8 wedges and place each wedge two inches apart from the other on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
- Bake for about 15 minutes, until the scones are golden brown, then transfer them to a wire rack so that they can slightly cool before serving.
