Three Cheese Scones
Three cheese scones are nice and soft in the middle and full of cheesy flavors.
of cold butter
freshly grated Gouda cheese
of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
of freshly grated Monterrey Jack Cheese
egg white + 2 tsp of water for eggwash
minced fresh dill weed for topping
Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into the bowl of an electric mixer.
Chop the cold butter into small slices and add to the dry ingredients. Mix the dry ingredients and butter until it looks like coarse crumbs.
In a small bowl, whisk the eggs and buttermilk together. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture while mixing on low speed. Add the cheeses and keep mixing until just combined.
Take the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough a few times (15-20 seconds), until smooth.
Pat the dough into a circle that is about 1/2 inch thick.
Preheat the oven to 400 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Using a round cookie cutter shape (about 2 inch size), cut out the scone circles. (Don't waste the remaining dough, reshape and cut out more scones.)
Whisk the egg white and water for the eggwash. Brush the scones lightly and sprinkle with some dill weed.
Bake for 12-14 minutes.
