Adapted from Cosette's Kitchen

  1. Place oven racks in the upper third of the oven and preheat oven to 425°F. Line two baking sheets with a silicone liner or parchment paper and set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, chives, cheese, and prosciutto. Mix gently.

  3. Slowly begin pouring the cream into the flour mixture, and stir using a silicone/rubber spatula. Add water and continue to mix gently until a cohesive dough forms.

  4. Dump the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Gently fold the dough over a few times and then split into 3 disks.

  5. Pat each disk down gently to ensure they're even and about 1" thick. Cut each disk into 8 even triangles for small Scones (yields 16) or each disk into 4 (yields 8 large Scones).

  6. Place 1-inch apart on the prepared baking sheets and brush tops of scones with heavy cream and a sprinkle with black pepper. 

  7. Bake for 20-27 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Swap trays at the halfway point to ensure even baking and browning on top.

  8. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
