The Best Cheese Scones

Recipe Description

Crunchy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, and filled with Cheddar Gruyere!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup (4 oz) Wood River Creamery Original Cheddar Gruyere, shredded
  • 1/2 cup chopped prosciutto
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream, divided
  • 1 egg
  • Softened butter

Preparation

Heat oven to 425°F. Line a 15 x 10-inch baking pan with parchment paper.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles pea-sized crumbs.

Toss in the cheddar gruyere, prosciutto and green onions. Whisk 3/4 cup cream and egg in a small bowl; add to flour mixture just until moistened and a dough forms.

Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead just to combine. Shape dough into an 8-inch circle, about 3/4-inch thick. Cut into eight wedges.

Transfer wedges to prepared pan. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Brush dough with remaining cream.

Bake for 22-24 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with butter.
