Tonight is chili night in my house. 🙂 These cheddar cheese scones are delicious with chili. You can add a pinch or two of cayenne to spice these up as well.
Cheddar Cheese Scones
Sift together dry ingredients*:
- 2 and 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
With a pastry blender, cut in:
- 1/2 cup cold butter
The add and mix in:
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Then add the wet ingredients and mix gently until it forms a soft dough:
- 1/4 cup plain unsweetened yogurt (equivalent to 1 egg)
- 1 cup milk with 1 tsp vinegar
With a rolling pin, roll out on a lightly floured surface and cut into scones. You can do this by forming the dough into a circle, flattening it and cutting it into triangles. Makes 8 large scones.
Bake 400 degrees F for approximately 15-17 mins.
Note: If you want to kick these up a notch, add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the dry ingredients!
