Canadian Cheddar Cheese Scones

No recipe image available.A delicious quick bread with the rich flavor of sharp cheddar cheese in every scrumptious bite. Brushing milk over the individual wedges before baking ensures a rather appealing crispiness to the outside of the scone. Wonderful served with a variety of salads, soups, stews and chili.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons dry mustard
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups (8-ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 large egg, beaten
1/4 to 1/3 cup milk

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Lightly grease a baking sheet; set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir flour, salt, baking powder and mustard powder together. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the cheese, mixing well.
  3. Combine the egg with 1/4 cup of the milk and stir into flour mixture to make a soft dough, adding more milk only if it is needed.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Knead several times and then pat dough out into an 8-inch circle onto the prepared baking sheet. Cut into 8 wedges. Brush scones with milk.
  5. Bake until tops are just starting to brown, about 9 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately.

Makes 8 scones.
