Za'atar scones. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk and set aside. In a larger mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, Za'atar, garlic granules, salt and sugar. Add in the butter and use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the flour, leaving it in pea sized chinks.

If you'er not familiar with za'atar, it's both a single herb (member of oregano family) and a blend. Usually the za'atar is mixed with sesame seeds, salt and sometimes sumac. And, it's also delicious when brushed over this aubergine cheesecake. Halved the quantity of the original recipe as I didn't want to make so many large scones.

N ext to our house in London was a quaint little bakery that sold the most delicious. This is a new twist on a family favorite, and a great addition to any festive brunch. It is easy to prepare as it is to eat, the classic Herby zaatar speckles this wholesome scone and gives it a crunch, and makes it very tasty with the labneh, It doesn't matter the time of day breakfast food like scone is always a warm comforting choice with a cup of coffee or tea. One of my favourite flavours was chive and cheddar, and while I still adore that classic combo, there is something entirely different and uniquely piquant about this za'atar and halloumi version. These scones are perfect with some fresh tomatoes and olives for breakfast, as a snack on their own, as a side to soups, or next to salads.
