Ham and Cheese Cannabis Scones

Difficulty: Normal








Equipment & Ingredients

  • Equipment
  • whisk
  • Dough cutter
  • Grater
  • mixing bowls
  • Hand or stand mixer
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 3 tbsp chopped chives
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup unsalted cannabis butter frozen

  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg separate
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped ham


  • Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl. Stir in the chives and shredded cheese.
  • Grate the frozen canna butter using a box grater. Add it to the flour mixture and combine with a pastry cutter, two forks, or your fingers until the mixture comes together in pea-sized crumbs. Place in the refrigerator or freezer as you mix the wet ingredients together.
  • Whisk 2/3 cup buttermilk and the egg yolk together. (Save egg white for step 5.) Pour over the flour/cheese mixture, add the ham, and then mix until the dough clumps together.
  • Pour dough onto a lightly floured work surface and, with floured hands, work dough into a ball as best you can. Dough will be sticky. If it’s too sticky, add a little more flour. If it seems too dry, add 1–2 more Tablespoons cold buttermilk. Press into an 8-inch disc and, with a sharp knife cut into 8 wedges.
  • Whisk 1 Tablespoon buttermilk with reserved egg white. Brush onto scones and, if desired, sprinkle with flaky sea salt. (You can do this before or after refrigerating in the next step.)
  • Place scones on a plate or lined baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F (204°C).
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat(s). If making mini or drop scones, use 2 baking sheets. After refrigerating, arrange scones 2–3 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet(s).
  • Bake for 22–25 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and lightly browned on top. Remove from the oven and cool for a few minutes on the baking sheets before serving.

Key Ingredients You Need

  1. Sugar: Without sugar, the scone’s flavour falls flat.
  2. Garlic Powder: Flavor and perfection all the way.
  3. Cold Cannabis Butter: Cold butter is the main ingredient in these cheddar scones. It adds flakiness, flavour, crisp edges, and rise. The colder, the better.
  4. Cheddar Cheese: Use your favourite cheddar cheese.
  5. Chives: A few Tablespoons of fresh chopped chives adds flavour.
  6. Buttermilk: The dough needs liquid, and buttermilk is best.
  7. Egg: An egg is what sets these scones apart from biscuits.
  8. Ham: Chop cooked ham into little bite-size cubes and mix into the dough as your add-in.
