Cheddar cheese and scallion scones

These are so good! I like the savory ones much better than the sweet ones. The recipe is from King Arthur Flour and they have lots of scone options on their web site.

I made a half batch, with sour cream as the dairy and they were delicious!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tbsp. baking powder

3 tbsp. cold butter, diced
1/2 cup diced Cabot extra sharp cheddar (2.3 oz. by weight)
2 scallions, cleaned, trimmed and chopped (both white and green parts)

1 large egg
1/6 cup sour cream (milk, cream, or ricotta can also be used)
1/2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
hot sauce

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

I used a greased sheet pan the first time, but I'd recommend parchment paper since I forgot about the cheese. It was kind of pain to clean up.

Mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder.

Add the butter and combine with your fingers.

Add the cheddar cheese and scallions.

Beat the egg in a bowl and add the sour cream (or other dairy), mustard and hot sauce. Add the mixed liquid to the dry ingredients and combine. With sour cream, I needed to add a little water because the dough was too dry.

On a floured surface, roll out to about 3/4" thick and cut triangles.

Bake for 20 minutes.
