Ham & Cheese Scones (5 Points Plus)

Ham and Cheese Scones (5 Points Plus)

Serves: 5

•1 Cup All Purpose Flour
•1/2 Tbsp Baking Powder
•1 tsp Sugar
•1/8 tsp Salt
•Pinch of Black Pepper
•1 1/2 Tbsp chilled butter, cut into small pieces
•1/3 Cup + 1 Tbsp Low Fat Mozzarella Cheese
•1/3 Cup + 1 Tbsp Lean Ham, chopped
•1/3 Cup + 1 Tbsp Fat Free Buttermilk (I used 1/3 Tbsp white vinegar and then added fat free milk to measure this amount – let it sit for about 10 mins to thick (you can use lemon juice instead of vinegar)
•1 Tbsp Chives ( I used the freeze dried Chives which are great to have in the cupboard)
•1 Large Egg White (I used Egg Beaters egg whites)

Preheat oven to 400 Degrees

Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and pepper in a large bowl.

Cut the butter into the dough using two knifes.

Gently stir in cheese, ham and chives.

Whisk together buttermilk and egg whites. Add to flour mixture and stir until just combined.

Take the dough and place it on a lightly floured surface. Knead 4-5 times lightly with floured hands.

Form dough into a half circle (8″ diameter) and place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

Carefully cut the dough into 5 wedges, not cutting all the way through the dough. (I personally forgot this step and cut into 5 portions after!!)

Bake at 400 Degrees for 20 mins until lightly browned.

Additional servings will be used with other meals later in the week.
