Jalapeno Cheddar SconesMore savory biscuits and scones you will be sure to enjoy from Lisa's vegetarian kitchen:
2 cups of unbleached white flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of sea salt
8 tablespoons of butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup of heavy cream
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups of extra old cheddar cheese
2 jalapeno peppers, minced
dash of cayenne
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or grease the baking sheet with butter.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter or a knife and fork until the butter is reduced to small crumbs.
Beat the eggs together with the cream and pour into the flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Fold in the cheddar and the jalapenos, along with a dash of cayenne pepper.
Shape into roughly 1 1/2 inch rounds and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for roughly 20 - 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Yields approximately 10 scones.
