READY IN: 50mins




  • Preheat oven to 400°. Spray mini scone pan with flour-added baking spray or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In small bowl, toss Pepper Jack Cheese and Green Onion with 1 Tablespoon of All-Purpose Flour and set aside.
  • In medium bowl, whisk together the All-Purpose Flour, Baking Powder, Cayenne Pepper (if using) and Salt.
  • Use a pastry blender, two knives or your fingers (my preference), cut the Butter into the Flour mixture until the butter is pea-size and the flour is silky.
  • Lightly beat (2) Eggs and the Half & Half with a fork and add it to the Flour mixture.
  • Add the Cheese/Onion mixture to the Flour mixture; use a wooden spoon to fold the mixture until it begins to come together.
  • Turn the dough onto a well-floured surface and knead gently for less than a minute.
  • Separate into 4 equal parts and pat each one into a portion of the Nordic Ware Mini Scone Pan. Or, pat dough into a 3/4 to 1-inch thick circle or rectangle and cut into desired shapes.
  • Lightly beat the remaining Egg with one teaspoon water; generously brush the tops of the scones.
  • Bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
