  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup butternut squash puree *see note
  • 1 cup kale or spinach washed dried, and cut into small pieces.
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese cut into small cubes
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk plus more for brushing


  • Pre-heat oven to 450°F.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Cut the butter in using a fork or pastry tool.
  • Stir in the butternut squash, spinach and feta.
  • Stir in the buttermilk and mix until just combined.
  • Form 10-12 small dough balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet, 1.5-2 inches in diameter.
  • Brush the tops with additional buttermilk.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until tops are golden and scones are baked through.


I roasted my butternut squash whole at 400°F for 30-40 minutes, then scooped out the middle and mashed it with a potato masher. I got exactly 1 cup of puree from ½ of a small butternut squash.
These scones keep for 3 days in a sealed container in the fridge.
