How to Make Jalapeno Cheddar Scones

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 400°F.

    In a small skillet, melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter and saute the jalapenos in it until soft, about two minutes. Let them cool, then place them in a small bowl with the cheddar cheese and coat them with one tablespoon of the flour.
  • 2Combine the remaining flour with the baking powder and salt. Cut in the remaining butter with a pastry blender, fork or two knives, until the butter bits are pea sized.

    I used my food processor for the butter and flour, then finished mixing in a bowl.
  • 3Lightly whip two of the eggs and cream and add to the flour-butter mixture. Using a wooden spoon, fold mixture until it begins to come together. Add the cheddar jalapeno mixture to the dough and mix until everything is incorporated.
  • 4Turn out the dough onto a well-floured surface and knead gently for less than one minute. Pat dough out to a 3/4- to 1-inch thickness and either cut into 8 triangles or the shape of your choice with a biscuit cutter.
  • 5Make an egg wash by beating the remaining egg with a teaspoon of water. Brush the scones with egg wash and place on a parchment-lined (or well-oiled) baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. I used parchment paper and they slid right off.
  • 6These oozed in cheese and so moist! Yummy!
