Haven't done a savory one for a while

Cheddar cheese scones
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

1/2 cup sour cream
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk (reserve the extra white)
1/4 cup honey

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

Mix dry ingredients; add butter and mix until mixture resembles coarse meal. Mix in grated cheese. Using a fork, stir sour cream mixture and honey into dry mixture until dough forms (will be somewhat sticky). Roll out into a disc about 12" across, and slice into 8 wedges. Arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Brush the tops lightly with the reserved egg white and sprinkle with grated cheese and sea salt.

Bake until golden, about 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Oh dear g*d these are so good.
