Place the Butter (1/2 cup) in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Turn the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or lightly grease the pan if you don't have the paper.
In a large bowl, combine the Whole Wheat Flour (2 1/2 cup), Baking Powder (1 tablespoon), and Salt (1 teaspoon).
Prepare your finely diced Jalapeño Pepper (1) and diced Sharp Sharp Cheddar Cheese (4 ounce).
Remove the butter from the freezer and grate it directly into the flour mixture.
Using your hands, gently squish the butter into the flour until everything is incorporated but not smooth. The chunks of butter will create flaky scones.
Add the jalapeno, cheese, Egg (2), and Milk (1/2 cup) to the bowl, then use your hands to gently mix everything until it just comes together.
Sprinkle flour on a clean countertop and dump the dough onto it.
Gently shape the dough into a disc about 1½" thick. Cut the dough into six triangles, like a pizza, and move them to the cookie sheet.
In a small bowl, gently beat the Egg (1) for the egg wash. Brush it over the scones.
Then sprinkle Salt and Pepper (to taste) over each one.
Bake for 25 minutes or until the scones are golden brown. Serve and enjoy!
