1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup shredded cheese (I used a Tex Mex mix)
3 tablespoons cold butter
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon butter, melted
1/3 cup shredded cheese
1. Preheat oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and cheese. Cut in butter until the size of peas. Stir in milk using a fork to form a soft dough.
3. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and press into a 6" wide circle, about 1" thick. Cut circle into 4 wedges then place onto baking sheet. Brush tops with melted butter then sprinkle some shredded cheese over top.
4. Bake scones 12-14 minutes until browned on the bottom. Reduce heat to 350°F and continue baking for 5 minutes until the tops are browned. Serve & enjoy!
Makes 4 large scones.
