Ingredients
  • 2½ cups flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 teaspoons McCormick┬« Sage, Rubbed
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon McCormick┬« Pure Vanilla Extract
  • ⅓ cup grated Asiago cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, sage, orange zest, and salt in large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or a fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Beat eggs, sour cream and vanilla in medium bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Stir in ¼ cup of cheese. Add to flour mixture; stir until a soft dough forms. Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead about 1 minute or until smooth. Place dough on greased baking sheet. Pat into a 10-inch circle. Score the top of the dough with sharp knife or a pizza cutter, then into 12 wedges. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes or so, until golden brown. Allow the scones to cool on the baking sheet before moving to another surface to finish cooling. Cut apart and serve!
