Parchment Paper
Baking Sheets


  • 2 ½ cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 3 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoon Finely chopped fresh chives
  • 8 tablespoon Chilled butter divided
  • 1 ½ cups Shredded smoked gouda
  • 1 cup Buttermilk*
  • 1 Large egg


  • Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and chives.
  • Chop 6 tablespoon of chilled butter into small cubes, reserve the remaining 2 Tbsp.
  • Cut chopped butter into dry ingredients using a fork (or two!) or a pastry blender / cutter until mixture is distributed throughout, and mixture resembles gravel.
  • Add cheese, stir until combined.
  • Whisk egg into buttermilk. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients, stir JUST until combined - mixture will be a little sticky.
  • Turn dough out onto a floured surface, sprinkling some flour on top. Gently knead for a few seconds, then gather dough up into a ball.
  • Press down to a disk that’s an even 1" thickness, cut into 6 wedges.
  • Transfer scones to prepared baking sheet.
  • Melt reserved butter, brush about half of it onto scones.
  • Bake for about 22-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • If you’d like, immediately brush the remaining butter over the hot scones, for extra richness.


* If you don’t have buttermilk, measure 2 teaspoon of lemon juice into your measuring cup, and top with milk to the 1 cup line. Let it sit a few minutes before using.
