Cheddar cheese and chive scones

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups All-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Sugar
2 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Baking soda
½ teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Chives
½ cup Shredded cheddar cheese; up to 1
¼ cup Butter or margarine; cut up
1 large Egg
⅔ cup Buttermilk*

Measure and mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, chives and cheddar cheese. Add the butter or margarine. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles course crumbs.

Lightly beat the egg with the buttermilk.

Pour in the egg/buttermilk mixture and stir with a fork until the mixture comes together.

Turn out onto a floured board and with floured hands knead the dough 5 or 6 times.

Place the rounded dough onto a greased baking sheet and, using a floured hand, press the dough out into a circle about 8 inches in diameter.

Using a large floured knife, cut into 8 pie-shaped segments.

Bake at 425ø for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve warm with fresh butter and enjoy! *If you don't have buttermilk on hand, add 1½ teaspoons of lemon juice to a measuring cup and then fill with milk to the ⅔ mark. Let it set while you are preparing the other ingredients. The lemon juice will turn the milk into a buttermilk substitute that is just a good as the real thing.
