Freeze Butter

Step 1:

Place a stick of dairy free butter into your freezer.  Freeze it for at least 2 hours (but overnight is best).

Make Flax "Egg"

Stir ground flaxseed with lemon juice and water. Set this mixture aside.

Mix Dry Ingredients

Step 3:

In a large bowl, whisk some flour, salt and baking powder until well combined.

Cut in Butter

Step 4:

Use a box grater to shred butter into the flour mixture. Toss the butter around so each shred is well coated.

Create Dough

Step 5:

Add the flaxseed “egg”, soy milk and sugar to your flour-butter mix. Stir together until mostly combined. 

Create Dough

Step 5:

Toss in shredded cheese and chopped chives. Continue stirring until the cheese and chives are spread evenly.

Shape Scones

Step 6:

Flour your countertop, then place the dough on it. Press or roll the dough to about 1-inch thick and cut into 8 or 10 scones. 

Bake and Serve

Step 7:

Preheat oven and transfer cut scones onto a baking tray. Brush with butter. Bake at 350 F for 15 min. 

Cool to room temperature, then transfer to an airtight container.  Refrigerate for up to 1 week.
