Finnish Rye Scones


After an entire month of dosas and more dosas, I am back to my breads in October. This week’s theme for our Blogging Marathon is to pick one alphabet and blog about three dishes from three countries of that alphabet. I picked F because I thought it is quite a neglected alphabet. It is not a popular one like S or M and there are so few words starting with it. When I saw the list of countries, there were only 3 that started with F which also reduced confusion for me and I decided to do a dish from each of the three countries. Well, who am I kidding? I picked F because I want to bake another French bread. But today we will start with these delicious Finnish Rye Scones.

Why I love these Rye scones?

It is such an easy dish to make. All you need to do is mix the ingredients and bake. Then it has multiple grains and flours like oats, whole wheat and rye which gives these scones an amazing texture and bite. The ingredients are such that are easily available at home and so it is a perfect choice for a quick and healthy snack. To top it all, the scones are so crumbly and nutty with the butter and topped with all the seeds.
