Cheddar Cheese and Scallion Scones

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups all purpose flour
  • ½ Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 6 Tablespoons COLD butter cut into pieces
  • 1 Cup Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese (They recommend Cabot extra sharp) I AGREE!!!
  • 3 Scallions, chopped thinly both white and green parts
  • 2 Eggs
  • ⅓ Cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 Teaspoon hot sauce

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 F.

In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder, and set aside.  Mix together the eggs, cream, mustard and hot sauce and set aside.

Using a pastry blender, or a food processor, cut the cold butter into the flour until you have a crumbly texture.  Add the grated cheese and scallions.  Toss to combine.

In the large mixing bowl, add the egg and cream mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir/fold, until everything just comes together, and the dough is evenly moistened. The dough will be very stick, try not to over work it.

Generously flour the counter, and turn the dough out onto the counter.  Using floured hands, pat the dough into a 10” by 2” rectangle.  Cut the rectangle into 5 2 inch squares.  Then cut each square in half on the diagonal making 10 triangular scones.

Place the scones on a parchment lined baking sheet, leaving an inch between each scone.  Bake for 20 minutes until evenly browned.

Serve warm and enjoy.

Chocolate Chip Scones

Nicole’s Chocolate Chip Scones (with Cranberries!)

Ingredients…

  • 2 cups of flour
  • ¼ cup of white sugar
  • 1 ¼ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup butter, cold, cut into pieces
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup of dried cranberries
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ⅔ – ¾ cup of milk

Instructions…

01Preheat the oven to 400 F.

02First off, in a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

03Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it is a coarse crumb. Then mix in the chocolate chips and cranberries.

04Combine the vanilla and milk in a small measuring cup and stir into the flour mixture so it just comes together.

05Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead the dough and gently and form it into a circle about seven inches around.

06Cut the circle in half and then cut each half in 4 pie shaped wedges.

07Finally, place the scones on a baking sheet, brush the tops of the scones with a little milk. I like to sprinkle a little extra sugar on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

08A tooth pick inserted in the middle that comes out clean will tell you that your scones are ready.

Enjoy!
