If you like cheese scones, you will love these beauties.  Super easy, super quick and super delicious.  For a twist I crumbled a bit of blue cheese with the Cheddar -turned out awesome.  Betcha can’t eat just one…

Tip – no buttermilk – use regular milk and add 1 tablespoon of vinegar – works like a charm.

Cheese Scones

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
1 cup old cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg, lightly beaten


1.  In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cayenne pepper and salt.

2. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

3. Stir in the cheese.

4. Add the buttermilk all at once, stirring with a fork to make a soft, sticky dough.

5. With lightly floured hands, press the dough into a ball.

6.  On a lightly floured surface, knead gently 10 times.

7  Pat out the dough into a 3/4-inch thick round.

8.  Using a 2-1/2-inch floured cutter, cut out rounds.

9.  Place on a ungreased baking sheet.

10.  Gather up the scraps and repat dough once; cut out more rounds.

11.  Brush the tops of the scones with egg.

12.  Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden.
