Ham and Cheese Scones

Ingredients:
  • 2 C flour
  • 1 Tbs. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
  • 3 Tbs. chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 C (3 oz.) shredded reduced-fat extra-sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 C finely chopped 33%-less-sodium-ham (about 3 oz.), or Canadian bacon
  • 3/4 C low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 large egg whites
  • Cooking Spray
Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and pepper in a large bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cheese and ham. Combine buttermilk and egg whites, stirring with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 to 5 times with floured hands. Pat dough into an 8-inch circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cut dough into 8 wedges, cutting into but not through dough. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
