    1       c            All-purpose flour
    1 1/2   ts           Baking powder
    1       t            Dry mustard
            pn           Salt
    1       c            Whole-wheat flour
    3       ts           Cold butter or margarine,
                         -cut in small pieces
      3/4   c            (3oz) finely shredded sharp
                         -Cheddar cheese
      2/3   c            Milk (about)
                         Butter
 
   This qualifies as a savory; a bit of a change from the usual scone.
   
   Preheat oven to 425F (220C).  Lightly grease a large baking sheet; set
   aside.  Sift all-purpose flour, baking powder, dry mustard and salt into a
   large bowl.  Stir in the whole-wheat flour.  With your fingers, rub in cold
   butter until mixture is crumbly.  Stir in 1/2 cup cheese.  Make a well in
   center of mixture; add milk and mix with a fork to make a dough that BARELY
   holds together (you may need to press dough together with your hands). Turn
   out onto floured surface and knead lightly.  Roll out with a floured
   rolling pin or pat dough with your hands to make a round about 3/4-inch
   thick.  Cut into rounds with a 2-inch fluted or plain cookie cutter. Place
   1 to 1 1/2 inches apart on baking sheet; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup
   cheese.  Bake 8-10 minutes or until well risen and golden. Transfer to a
   wire rack to cool.  When cold, split and serve with butter. Makes about 12
   scones.
