Could soft, buttery scones get any better? Yes.
We added a southern twist by adding Ontario made buttermilk.
Preheat the oven to 425°. Prepare a parchment line baking sheet and set aside.
In a large bowl, add baking powder, salt, sugar, baking soda, and flour. Whisk to combine. Add Ontario shredded cheddar, jalapenos, and Ontario butter. Press with your hands to incorporate.
Add egg and gradually drizzle buttermilk overtop, tossing with a fork as you go.
Knead mixture lightly until a shaggy dough forms, dusting the surface occasionally. Roll dough into a 1" thick rectangle and cut into triangular pieces, making about 8 biscuits.
Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush tops of biscuits with melted butter and place in the oven. Bake scones for 20 minutes or until deep golden brown on bottom and golden on the top. Serve and enjoy!
