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!
