  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 large eggs 2 for scones and one for egg wash
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk or 1 tablespoon vinegar and 2/3 cup milk-mix and sit for 5 min until thick
  • 2/3 cup grated sharp cheddar
  • 1/4 cup chopped chives or green onions in a pinch


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into the flour with a pastry cutter or food processor.
  3. Whisk 2 eggs and combine with the buttermilk. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just moist.
  4. Stir in the cheddar and chives and mix lightly. The dough will be sticky.
  5. Turn the sticky dough out onto a well floured board and knead lightly. Cut dough in half. Roll each half into a circle...about 3/4 inch thick. Cut each circle into 4 wedges.
  6. Whisk remaining egg in a small dish and brush on top of the scones.
  7. Let the scones rest for about 10 minutes before baking (you will get a higher, fluffier scone as the baking powder activates)
  8. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden.
