  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup grated gruyere
  • 1/2 cup chopped prosciutto
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons half and half
  • sea salt
  • additional parmesan for sprinkling


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour mixture, until you have course crumbs. This can also be done with two knives or a food processor.
  • Whisk the eggs lightly and combine with the buttermilk. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just moist.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the gruyere, prosciutto, parmesan and green onion. Add this to the batter, then mix lightly. The dough will be sticky.
  • On a lightly floured surface, turn the sticky dough out and knead lightly until all the cheese, prosciutto and green onion are incorporated into the dough. Roll the dough 3/4 inch thick. Cut out 3 inch squares, then cut diagonally to make triangles. You should have about 10 scones. Place the scones on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicone mat, and lightly brush with half and half. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Place the scones in the freezer for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Once the scones are chilled, bake for 20 minutes, or until golden. Sprinkle with additional parmesan cheese and serve warm.
