Peppered Pear Scones with Pear Conserve

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, the 1/2 teaspoon cracked pepper, the baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
  2. In a small bowl beat eggs lightly; stir in cheese and buttermilk. Add the buttermilk mixture all at once to the flour mixture. Using a fork, stir just until moistened. Fold in pear pieces.
  3. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Quickly knead dough by folding and gently pressing for 10 to 12 strokes or until nearly smooth. Pat or lightly roll the dough into an 8-inch square. Cut into 16 squares.
  4. Place scones 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. If desired, sprinkle with additional cracked pepper. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer scones to a wire rack. Serve warm with Pear Conserve.
