Ingredients

 3 ¼ cups flour
 2 ½ teaspoons baking powder
 ½ teaspoon baking soda
 ½ teaspoon salt
 ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper, more for finishing
 ¾ cup + 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated
 1 cup buttermilk
 ¼ cup honey
Yields1 Serving

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and soda, salt, and freshly cracked black pepper. Cut in the ¾ cup butter. The butter should be unsalted, very cold, and cut into cubes to easily work it in. Cut in butter until it forms coarse crumbs.

3

Mix in the grated cheddar cheese. Stir in the buttermilk and honey. Mix until a dough forms.

4

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently. Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a 5-inch round.

5

Melt the remaining butter and let it cool slightly. Brush the rounds with the melted butter and top them off with even more freshly cracked pepper.

6

Cut each round into 6 slices and place them on the baking sheet. Bake the scones for 12-15 minutes until the tops are golden.

7

Serve immediately and enjoy!
