"Delicious served warm with cream cheese."

1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. whole wheat flour
2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2 Tb. chopped fresh dill weed
1/4 c. unsalted butter, chilled

1 large egg


Preheat oven to 400ºF. Lightly butter a 9" diameter circle in center of baking sheet.

In large bowl stir together the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in scallion and dill weed. Cut butter into 1/2" cubes and distribute over flour mixture. With pastry blender or two knives used scissors fashion, cut in butter 'til incorporated into mixture. In small bowl, stir together buttermilk and egg. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and knead together 'til combined.

With lightly floured hands, pat dough into 7" diameter circle in center of prepared baking sheet. With serrated knife, cut into 8 wedges. Bake for 15-17 min. or 'til toothpick inserted into center of scone comes out clean.
