Kale & Cheddar Scones
Yields 16 scones
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
¾ cup unsalted butter (1 ½ stick)
1 cup plain yogurt or buttermilk
1 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs, divided
1 cup shredded cheddar
1 ½-2 cups chopped baby kale

1. Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Add butter and blend until it resembles coarse cornmeal. Transfer to a bowl.
2. Combine yogurt, baking soda and 1 whole egg, 1 egg yolk and mix well. Add the buttermilk, cheddar and kale to flour mixture and mix gently to create dough.
3. Turn dough onto a lightly floured board and divide in half. Pat each dough half into circle approx. 6”-7” in diameter. Cut each circle into eighths, and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Brush scones with remaining egg white and sprinkle with salt.. Bake scones in a pre-heated 400°F oven for 14-16 minutes. Cool and serve as desired.
