Please Note: The recipe filmed is Klinger’s normal bakery sized recipe (120 scones). The directions and ingredients listed in titles on screen are for a scaled-down version (25-30 scones). The recipe as posted here is also for the scaled-down version.
- 10 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp + 2 tsp salt
- ¼ cup + 1 tbsp baking powder
- 3 tbsp + 1 tsp granulated sugar
- 10 oz butter (cut into small pieces)
- 1 lb shredded cheddar cheese
- 3 oz chopped chives
- 2.5 tsp black pepper
- 5 cups Monument Farms Heavy Cream
HOW TO MAKE IT
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine all ingredients except for heavy cream in a mixer bowl (with paddle attachment).
- Mix on first speed until mixture is coarse like sand (butter should be pea size or smaller).
- Gradually add heavy cream until just combined. Be careful to not over mix the dough. If the mixture seems dry, add more cream.
- Bring dough together into a uniform ball shape and flatten onto a floured table . Roll out to 3/4" thickness.
- Cut out scones by using a 2.5" round biscuit cutter. When the first batch of scones is cut, you can re-roll the dough to minimize waste.
- Bake scones for approx. 20 minutes, until golden brown on edges. For a nicer look, you can egg wash the tops prior to baking.
