My new brother, Joel, loves pesto. These were meant to be a treat to take to him at work, but David and I ended up eating all of them. The perils of delicious scones, I suppose.

    Do you also put the butter in the dough?

    • Rachel Schultz

      Yes.

  • I made these tonight for dinner! Very delicious! I might add more than a 1/4 cup of pesto next time for a bit more flavor. Thanks for the recipe, any reason to have pesto is a good one!
