Ingredients

2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose flour
4 tsp (20 mL) baking powder
1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) cayenne pepper
1/4 cup (60 mL) cold butter
1 cup (250 mL) Canadian Old Cheddar or 
Gruyère cheese, shredded
1 cup (250 mL) Milk

Topping:
1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded Canadian Old Cheddar cheese

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425 °F (220 °C).

In large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and cayenne. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in cheese. Pour in milk; stir with fork until soft, sticky dough forms.

Turn out dough onto lightly floured surface and shape into 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick square. Cut into 2-inch (5 cm) squares or rounds and place, touching each other, on ungreased baking sheet.

Topping:
Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 12 to 15 min or until golden.

Variation:
Fruit Scones: Add 2 tbsp (30 mL) sugar in place of cayenne and 1/2 cup (125 mL) currants or raisins or dried cranberries in place of cheese. Add grated rind of 1 lemon or orange if desired in step 2.

Tips

Time-Saving Tip: In food processor, combine dry ingredients (without cheese). Using on/off motion, cut in butter until crumbly, then blend in milk and cheese just until moistened and dough sticks together.

Healthy Eating Tip: Say cheese please- As a general rule, the firmer the cheese- like the Cheddar in this recipe- the higher the calcium content.
