Ham and Cheese Scones

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
3 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
– 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded reduced-fat extra-sharp cheddar cheese
– 3/4 cup finely chopped 33%-less-sodium ham (about 3 ounces)
– 3/4 cup fat-free buttermilk
2 large egg whites

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cheese and ham. Combine buttermilk and egg whites, 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, cutting into but not through dough. Bake at 400F for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Yield: 8 servings.
