Michael “Loath to Endorse” Bloomberg Black Pepper-Parmesan Scones

So delicious, you won't hesitate to recommend these to your family and friends!

1-3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiana Reggiano Cheese
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. each salt, baking soda
2 tsp. sugar
4 Tbsp. butter, cut up
¾ cup milk

Heat oven to 450°F.

Combine flour, cheese, cream of tartar, black pepper, salt, baking soda and sugar in medium bowl.  Cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Make a well in the center and pour in milk.  Working quickly, blend ingredients together with a rubber spatula into a soft, slightly wet dough.  Turn dough onto well floured work surface.

Quickly roll dough into an 8-inch circle.  Cut circle into 8 wedges. Separate each of the sections and bake on greased baking sheet 10 to 12 minutes or until scones are lightly browned.  Serve warm with salad, grilled chicken or fish.

For spicy scones, add 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper.
