Summer is Ontario zucchini season and when you have a bounty of zucchini you are just looking for ways to incorporate it into recipes. This recipe fits the bill and adds the perfect freshness.

Ingredients
⦁ 1 lb zucchini
⦁ 3 1/3 cups self-rising flour
⦁ 2 level tsp baking powder
⦁ 11 tbsp unsalted butter, cold
⦁ 2 tsp dried chili flakes
⦁ 7 oz feta cheese

⦁ red onion
⦁ 2 large eggs

Tips
⦁ Extra scones can be frozen raw, then cooked to order straight from frozen at 350°F. for 35 minutes.
⦁ Add in any other veggies you have on hand if you like. I had orange bell pepper and red onion so I added a little.

Please Enjoy

My thoughts
These scones turned out pretty well, if not a little too dense and salty. Just beware of how salty the feta you use are and use less salt when removing excess water from the zucchini in the beginning. These scones looked perfect though which made me very happy as my scones shape in usually hit or miss once removed from the oven.
