Show Mother just how much you appreciate her with scones with walnut butter
1 ½ cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
5 tablespoons cold butter
1 Empire apple, diced
¼ cup Applewood smoked cheddar, diced
2 large eggs
¼ cup milk
½ cup unsalted butter at room temperature
¼ cup walnuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 400 F. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet and set aside. In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper. Cut in butter with pastry cutter or fork until large pieces are broken up. In another bowl, whisk together milk and eggs. Add egg mixture, apple and cheese to flour, stirring until dough comes together. Spoon one generous tablespoon of dough per scone onto baking sheet. Bake until golden brown (approximately 20 minutes). Transfer scones to wire racks to cool. Serve warm with walnut butter.
Add butter and walnuts to food processor. Pulse until large chunks are broken up.
