Ingredients

2 3/4
cups Pillsbury BEST® Self-Rising Flour
1/2
cup cold butter, cubed
1
cup chopped smoked ham
1
cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
2
teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
1
cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk
1 3/4
cups cherry preserves (from 2 12-oz jars)
  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Line large cookie sheet with parchment paper. In large bowl, mix flour and 3/4 teaspoon black pepper. With pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through mixture in opposite directions) cut in butter until mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
  • 2 Stir in ham, cheese and 1 teaspoon of the rosemary; mix well. Stir in 1 cup of the buttermilk and 2 tablespoons water just until moistened. Turn dough onto lightly floured work surface; gently knead 2 to 3 times. Divide dough in half; pat each into 6-inch round and place on cookie sheet. Cut each round into 8 wedges; place wedges 1 inch apart.
  • 3 Brush scones with remaining 2 tablespoons buttermilk. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to cooling rack.
  • 4 Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix preserves, remaining 1 teaspoon rosemary and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Serve with warm scones.
