Chive Buttermilk Scones
Scones make a great dipper for the sauce. For biscuit-like scones, just be sure to lightly pat out the dough, instead of rolling it.
Preheat oven to 450°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Pulse all-purpose flour, cake flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, baking soda, and chives in a food processor until combined.
Add cubed butter and shortening to dry mixture; pulse just until butter is pea-sized. Add buttermilk; pulse 2–3 times to incorporate.
Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and form a ball. Gently shape dough into a 6×8-inch rectangle; cut into 8 pieces and transfer to prepared baking sheet. Bake scones until bottoms are golden brown, 15–18 minutes, brushing with melted butter during last few minutes of baking.
