Cheddar Scones

When I mentioned these scones in my last post, I went to link to them and discovered I hadn't posted the recipe yet, so here they are! These are a delicious savory scone, and go perfectly with soup and italian dishes!

Cheddar Scones

1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup cold butter
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 Tblsp grated Parmesan cheese
1 large egg
1/2 cup milk

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Put flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, dry mustard, and salt into a large bowl; mix well. Cut butter into chunks, and cut into flour mixture with a pastry blender or rub in your fingers, until the mixture looks like fine granules.
Add cheese and toss to mix.
Break egg into milk and beat with a fork to blend well. Pour this over flour mixture and stir with a fork until a dough forms. Turn out dough on a lightly floured board and give 10-12 kneads. Form dough into a round, and cut into wedges. Seperate the wedges a bit so the inside will cook properly
Place on an un~greased cookie sheet.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown
