Serves: 8 scones
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 1 Tbs baking powder
  • 8 Tbs salted butter, cold and cut into cubes
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 cup ham, diced
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar + more for top
  1. In a medium bowl combine flour, sugar, and baking powder.
  2. Using your fingers or a pastry cutter cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Add in milk and mix together with your hands* until all the flour is incorporated, about 5 minutes.
  4. Fold in diced ham and shredded cheese until evenly dispersed.
  5. Pat dough into a circle about ¾" thick and cut into 8 equal wedges.
  6. Transfer to a lined baking sheet, top each scone with more shredded cheese, and bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
*I've tried mixing the milk in with a wooden spoon but I always end up using my hands. Save spoons! Use your hands!
