Ham-and-Cheddar Scones
Ingredients
1 3/4
2
teaspoons baking powder
1
teaspoon sugar
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
1/8
teaspoon salt
1/2
cup butter
1/4
cup diced cooked ham
1
tablespoon chopped fresh dill or 1 tsp. dried dillweed
3/4
cup dairy sour cream
1
egg, lightly beaten
1
tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
 
Fresh dill (optional)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment; set aside. In a large bowl combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese, ham, and dill. Combine sour cream, egg, and mustard; add all at once to flour mixture. Using a fork, stir just until mixture is moistened, Do not overwork.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing it for four to six strokes or just until dough holds together. Pat or lightly roll dough until 3/4 inch thick. Cut dough with a floured 2-1/2- to 3-inch biscuit cutter. Reroll scraps as necessary, dipping cutter into flour between cuts. Place dough circles 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden. Cool slightly on a wire rack. Serve warm. If desired, sprinkle with fresh dill. Makes 10 to 12 scones.
