Cheese Scones

Boyikos de kezo (boyikos de rayo)

These easy to make savory scones are loaded with a flavorful blend of Greek cheeses, filling the home with enticing aromas as they bake. The name boyikos de rayo, derived from rayo in Ladino (grater), refers to the decorative imprint that was traditionally made on the scone with a grater. I have made a twist on our traditional recipe with the ingredients, adding butter and cream instead of oil and the method to resemble the flaky, crumbly scones I grew up with in Zimbabwe. Boyikos, are the ultimate treat for breakfast or at tea time served warm with some Kalamata olives or feta cheese are sheer bliss.
