Ham & Cheese Scones Recipe

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 1/2 tsp sugar

  • 3/4 tsp salt

  • 1/2 stick butter, melted

  • 1 cup milk plus 2 tablespoons of milk, separated

  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

  • 1 cup ham, chopped fine

  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

  • 1/2 tsp roasted garlic powder

  • 1 tsp fresh parsley, minced

  • 1 green onion, scallion, or chives sliced into fine rings (optional)

  • Non fat cooking spray

Cooking Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F

  2. Into a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Then add the melted butter, milk cheese, pepper, garlic powder, parsley and green onions. Stir together just until a soft dough forms and then mix well with a fork for about 30 seconds. The dough will still be slightly

  3. Prepare a cooking tray with non fat cooking spray, a silicon baking mat or parchment paper. On a lightly floured surface, turn the dough out onto the prepared surface. With lightly oiled or greased fingers, pat the dough out into a circle about 9 inches in diameter. With a pizza wheel, slice the dough into 8 pieces. Place the dough on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart for even cooking. Brush the tops of the scones with the remaining 2 tbsp of milk.

  4. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. A toothpick inserted into the middle of the scone should come out clean. If they are still a little doughy, return them to the oven and bake a few minutes longer.
