Serve them as a side to soup or salad.....nice when served slightly warm. A Delia Smith recipe that I found about 10 years ago....

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First sift the flours and baking powder into a large bowl, tip in any bran left in the sieve, then add the cayenne and mustard powder and, using a knife, work in the 2 tablespoons of olive oil, plus the reserved tablespoon of oil from the sun-dried tomatoes.
  2. When the mixture looks like lumpy breadcrumbs stir in the chopped thyme, cubed Feta, olives and sun-dried tomatoes.
  3. Now in a separate bowl beat the egg with the 2 tablespoons of milk and add half this mixture to the other ingredients.
  4. Using your hands, bring the mixture together to form a dough, adding more of the egg and milk as it needs it – what you should end up with is a dough that is soft but not sticky.
  5. On a floured board, roll the dough out to a depth of 1 inch (do not roll it out thinner they might not rise well) stamp out the scones using a 2 inch cutter, plain or fluted.
  6. Put the cut-out pieces on a baking tray and brush them with the milk.
  7. Finally top each scone with the crumbled Feta, and put the tray on the highest shelf of the oven to bake for 12-15 minutes or until they've turned a golden colour.
  8. Then remove them to a wire rack to cool.

This is the first time I ever made scones and they were so worth the wait. I made these to serve with Moussaka and a Greek Salad in honor of the Olympics and they are superb.

Just by coincidence I had already downloaded this recipe from the Delia Smith Website to try; your posting it here gave me the extra incentive, and I'm glad I did. Very flavorful, easy to make, and pretty as well. Only negative is that mine didn't rise quite as I would have liked, but even with that I still think they are outstanding. Thanks for posting !
