Ham, Cheese and Chipotle Scones

I love the taste and smell of chipotle. Its an ingredient most people either love or hate and I am a lover! I know that chipotle pairs great with cheese and what goes better with cheese than ham? Right!

So there you have it. Now you know the whole story behind my Ham Cheese & Chipotle Scones. They are out of this world delicious and a great side to any type of dinner. I made extras and we have the scones with salad, soup and even pasta. They are perfect, easy and best part of all is the kids will love them even as much you do!

Ingredients

  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 0.5 cup heavy cream
  • 0.75 cup chopped ham, drained
  • 0.75 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 stick cold butter cut into small pieces
  • 1 minced chipotle chile
  • 0.25 tsp paprika
  • 0.25 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs

Directions

Combine flour, baking powder, paprika, sugar, salt, pepper and dill in a large bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or use a food processor and pulse on low until the mixture resembles coarse meal. If using a food processor, transfer the flour mixture to a large bowl and stir in cheese, chipotle chili and ham. Combine milk and eggs, stirring with a whisk. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 to 5 times with floured hands. Pat dough into an 8-inch circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cut dough into 8 wedges. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
