How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Baking sheets may be ungreased, or lined with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar; whisk together to mix.
  • With a pastry blender or two knives, cut butter and cream cheese into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • In a small bowl, stir the buttermilk and egg together. Add the liquid mixture and walnuts to the flour mixture; stir just until mixed. The dough will be stiff and slightly sticky. If necessary, turn the mixture onto a lightly floured board and knead gently until the flour is combined. Do not over-knead as this will make a tougher scone.
  • On a lightly floured surface, shape and pat the dough into a circle or rectangle about ¾ inches thick. Cut into wedges, squares or circles with a floured knife and place them 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.
  • Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until the scones are lightly browned. Remove scones from baking sheets and cool on wire racks.
