Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl whisk together the
All-Purpose Flour (1 cup)
Baking Powder (1/2 Tbsp)
Smoked Paprika (1/4 tsp)
Chili Powder (1/4 tsp)
Salt (1 pinch)
to aerate the mixture. Then add in the
Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese (1/2 cup)
Jalapeño Pepper (1)
Almond Milk (2/3 cup)
and stir it all just until it comes together into a soft dough.
Turn the mixture out onto a clean, well floured surface and bring it together into a ball with your floured hands. Then pat it down into a flat disc that is about 1/2 an inch thick. Use a floured bench scraper to cut the disc into 8 equal wedges, and transfer those wedges to the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the scones for about 15 minutes, until puffy and golden. The cheddar will be crispy on the edges. Take them out and brush them all with the
Butter (1 Tbsp)
while they are still hot. Let them cool for a couple of minutes on the tray before transferring them to a rack to cool for another couple of minutes. Enjoy immediately!
