Why I Love This Recipe

Yum! The amount of pepper can be reduced to make a less spicy scone.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 cups King Arthur Unbleached All Purpose Flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup (4 ounces) grated cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
3/4 cup (6 ounces) buttermilk or plain yogurt
Milk (for glaze)


Sift together in a large bowl, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.

Cut in butter and cheese.

Stir in the black pepper.

Refrigerate the dough for 1/2 hour.

Gently stir in the buttermilk or yogurt.

Gather mixture into a ball with your hands and place on a well floured surface, roll or pat the dough into a 12 x 8 inch rectangle about 1/4inch thick.

Grease a baking sheet.

Using a large spatula or a couple of spatulas, transfer the dough to the baking sheet.

With a knife, cut dough into 1 1/2 inch squares. Separate the squares slightly on the baking sheet. Brush each square with a little milk.

Bake in a preheated 400 oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until very lightly browned.
