Rosemary, Parmesan, and Pancetta Scones

I learned something this week, it sometimes is ok to have two of something. Two glasses of wine….two scones…and apparently two women. This past week I was pulled over for speeding and was sure that I was going to get a big fat ticket. To say the least, I was less then thrilled. But after running all my info the  cop walked up to the door and handed me my warning ticket paper and asked me for my number. I smiled and said sorry, I’m married. To which he replied, So am I! And then continued to try to get my number. When did this become ok or the norm in our society? I mean, I get it, people cheat. Probably more then I like to think. But I didn’t know it would happen just like that. Eventually he got the hint, and thankfully still let me go without a ticket. All of my friends got a big kick out of it when I told them and I guess I learned that sometimes having two of something isn’t always bad….especially when it is two of these scones!

Easy Savory Scones Recipe

Rosemary, Parmesan, and Pancetta Scones are perfect for a quick savory breakfast or snack. Full of flavor, these scones are so easy to make!.

Prep Time 50 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes


  • 12 slices pancetta
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature, cut into pieces
  • 8 ounces parmesan cheese, grated (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 3 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a medium skillet, cook the pancetta, stirring, until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well on paper towels. Once cooled, chop.

Into a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and sugar. Cut in the butter, cheese, green onions, rosemary and pepper with a pastry blender or fork, and work just until it starts to form lumps and come together.

Add the pancetta. Add heavy cream and work just until it becomes a sticky dough, being careful not to overwork. Wrap dough in saran wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and pat until it comes together. Form into 2 large circles, about 7 inches in diameter and 3/4 inch thick and cut each into 8 wedges with a sharp knife.

Transfer to baking sheet with a spatula, leaving 1/2-inch space between each wedge. Bake for 20-22 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on the baking sheet. Serve warm.

    Oh my, that is a freaky story about that cop. Glad you got to unwind with wine and these amazing scones!

    Two tumbs up for us!!! WE make one heck of a team in the kitchen and these were so yummy!! You are absolutely right…things in pairs are great!!

    That cop is hysterical. I’m glad he still let you get away without a ticket though! This iced tea looks fabulous. Love the flavors!

    I would have given anything to have a cop say that to me. I was pulled over for doing 82 in a 60 a few weeks ago, and my officer of le law gave me a guilt trip about how my parents, siblings, friends, and coworkers would feel if I died – or became permanently incapacitated – because of my reckless driving. I didn’t have a great comeback for that one, so I just cried and said sorry. Oh, and bad ass scones!

    You are killing me here! The Fluffernutter Cupcakes and now this?? They look divine. I just finished making and freezing a huge batch of blueberry scones, and I think I will do the same with these!

    I got pulled over today. The cop asked for my number too…but just to put it on the stinkin’ ticket 🙁

  8. Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking

    Ooo, these would be so great come wintertime, with a big bowl of soup or stew. I love the idea of a non-breakfast scone, and I think even my anti-scone husband would enjoy them too!

    ewwww. Not the scones…the cop. When you mentioned what he did, it reminded me of a show (Cold Case Files I think) I just saw where the cop was a real ladies’ man. He finally killed a girl. He was the model cop. So people thought. Lots of women came forward during the investigation complaining about his flirting and aggressiveness. Anyways, be careful out there ladies.

    What a sleezeball of a man and cop! shame!!! But two of these scones and wine would be PERFECT! I am loving the flavour combos in these!! *saving*
