Cheddar & Onion Scones
2 cups of Harvest Moon Mills Sifted All-Purpose flour
2 tablespoons of sugar
1.5 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
8 tablespoons of chilled, unsalted butter
1/3 cup of sliced green onion
1/2 cup of milk
1 large egg
2 cloves of smashed garlic
4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
Grate cold butter into the flour and mix together. Rub the flour mixture between your fingers to break the butter into tiny pieces.
Try to work quickly to prevent the butter from melting before baking.
Add green onion and cheddar. Toss the mixture together.
Add milk and egg and fold the mixture together until everything is just moistened.
Lightly flour the baking sheet and transfer the dough onto it. Lightly flour the top of the dough and flatten it evenly into an 1 inch thick disc. Cut the dough into 6 even triangles. Place each triangle at least 1 inch apart on the baking sheet.
Heat 4 Tablespoons of butter with 2 cloves of smashed garlic on the stove or microwave.
Use ⅓ of the garlic butter to brush the top of the scones.
Bake for about 8 minutes then brush the tops of the scones again with garlic butter.
Continue baking the scones for about 3-5 minutes, until the tops of the scones are gold brown.
Remove the scones from the oven. Brush again with garlic butter and enjoy!
