Manchego, Herb, and Sun-Dried Tomato Scones

Since cheeses contain saturated fat, use flavorful ones in small amounts. Spanish Manchego cheese adds mild, nutty notes and a salty punch to these scones. The longer the cheese has aged, the sharper the flavor. Ready-to-use sun-dried tomatoes don't require rehydration and add hearty flavor without extra fat.

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Manchego cheese

Preparation

  2. 2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cheese, tomatoes, and basil. Add buttermilk and egg whites, stirring just until moist.
  3. 3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 times with floured hands. Pat dough into an 8-inch circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
