+ 1 T.
cold & sliced
finely grated & pressed dry
Preheat oven to 400°F / 200°C.
Mix 2 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the cold butter and quickly work into coarse crumbles.
In a separate bowl, whisk yogurt, egg, and honey until smooth. Then fold into dry ingredients just until combined.
Toss zucchini, 6 oz. cheddar, and thyme with 1 T. of flour until coated, then gently work into dough.
Turn dough onto a clean work surface and shape into an 8-inch circle. Cut into 12 wedges and place each on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with remaining cheddar.
Bake at 400°F / 200°C for 20-22 minutes, until tops are golden brown.
Two large (or three small) zucchini yields about 1 cup, after grating and pressing dry with paper towels.
