Cheddar and Scallion Scones

I was trying to make homemade pasta tonight, but I got so frustrated. The pasta got all stringy, when running it through the pasta machine. I tried different settings and nothing worked. so, I decided to say screw this! And I made scones instead.

Baking is really easy once you figure it out. It seems to me, there’s a different process for cakes, biscuits, breads, etc. Once you learn that process, you can put together your own recipes. Adjust them to what you like. If you cut back on the butter, that are in biscuits, you can still make a pretty good one. Add some scallions and cheddar cheese into the biscuit or try different spices. If you want a sweet scone, add in some sugar and dried fruit. I came up with this recipe myself and wrote it all down right away after I was done. Thought they turned out really well. Better than my pasta anyway. ;) Hope you like them too!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons cold butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup low fat butter milk

1/2 cup cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons of scallions

Directions:

In a food processor combine flour, soda, baking powder, and salt, and butter. Pulse 3 times or until butter resembles peas. Add in cheddar, and chopped scallions. Gradually add in milk until the dough comes together to form a ball.

Roll out dough about 8 inches round. Cut 8 wedges and brush egg wash on top of the scones. This will help them get that golden color on top. Bake at 450 for 10- 12 minutes.
