Pear, Apple & Cheddar Scones
(adapted from this recipe)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
110g chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1/2 light packed cup cheddar cheese, coarsely grated
1/2 cup peeled, cored, grated and drained apple
1/2 cup peeled, cored, grated and drained pear
3/4 cup buttermilk, plus more if needed
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C and line a baking tray with paper. Place flour, baking powder and salt in a food processor and pulse to combine. Add butter and then pulse until the mixture resembles a coarse meal.
Transfer to a bowl and stir in pear, cheese and apple. Add 3/4 cup buttermilk and stir until just combined, taking care not to overmix. If the dough is still crumbly, stir in more buttermilk 1 tbsp at a time until dough comes together.
