Ham & Cheese Scones Recipe
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1 1/2 tsp sugar 3/4 tsp salt 1/2 stick butter, melted 1 cup milk plus 2 tablespoons of milk, separated 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded 1 cup ham, chopped fine 1/4 tsp ground black pepper 1/2 tsp roasted garlic powder 1 tsp fresh parsley, minced 1 green onion, scallion, or chives sliced into fine rings (optional) Non fat cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400°F Into a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Then add the melted butter, milk cheese, pepper, garlic powder, parsley and green onions. Stir together just until a soft dough forms and then mix well with a fork for about 30 seconds. The dough will still be slightly Prepare a cooking tray with non fat cooking spray, a silicon baking mat or parchment paper. On a lightly floured surface, turn the dough out onto the prepared surface. With lightly oiled or greased fingers, pat the dough out into a circle about 9 inches in diameter. With a pizza wheel, slice the dough into 8 pieces. Place the dough on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart for even cooking. Brush the tops of the scones with the remaining 2 tbsp of milk. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. A toothpick inserted into the middle of the scone should come out clean. If they are still a little doughy, return them to the oven and bake a few minutes longer.
