Everything Bagel Scones
Serves: 12
 
Ingredients
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons everything bagel seasoning, divided
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ½ cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • ½ cup shredded smoked Gouda cheese
  • 1½ cups plus 2 tablespoons cold heavy whipping cream, divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, 1 tablespoon everything bagel seasoning, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender or 2 forks, cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add cheese, tossing to combine.
  3. Add 1 cup cold cream to flour mixture, stirring until a shaggy dough begins to form. Working gently, bring mixture together with hands until a dough forms. (If mixture seems dry and dough won’t come together, add up to ¼ cup more cream, as needed, 1 tablespoon at a time.)
  4. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until smooth by patting dough and folding it in half 5 to 7 times. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough to a ¾-inch thickness. Using a 2¼-inch round cutter dipped in flour, cut 12 scones from dough, rerolling scraps once. Place scones 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
  5. Brush tops of scones with remaining 2 tablespoons cream. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon everything bagel seasoning.
  6. Bake until edges of scones are lightly browned, 20 to 22 minutes. Let cool slightly on baking sheets for 5 to 6 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
