Servings 8


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour plus more for kneading
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 12 tablespoons cold unsalted butter diced
  • 2 extra-large eggs
  • ½ cup cold buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon milk or water
  • 1 cup grated extra-sharp cheddar


  • Heat oven to 425°F. Add flour, baking powder, and salt to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix to combine, then add butter and mix on low speed until dough resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Beat 1 egg with 1 tablespoon of milk in a small bowl. Add buttermilk and whisk to combine. Add buttermilk mixture to the dough and mix on low speed until moistened.
  • Add cheddar and a handful of flour to a small bowl and stir to combine. Add cheese mixture to the dough and mix on low speed until combined.
  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Beat the second egg in a small bowl with a bit of water to create an egg wash. Set aside.
  • Knead dough lightly on a well-floured board, making sure to not overwork it. Roll dough out to a roughly 10-inch-by-5-inch rectangle. Form ¼ cup-size portions and place onto the sheet pan. Brush tops with egg wash and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm.

Peju Province Winery

Established in 1983, Peju Province Winery is dedicated to producing balanced, expressive, and elegant wines from organic and sustainably farmed vineyards in the Napa Valley. Located on an idyllic estate in the renowned Rutherford appellation, the winery is home to lush gardens, distinctive architecture, and a tasting room offering world-class hospitality and culinary experiences. Still family owned and operated, our business has transformed over the past 32 years from a simple grape growing venture into a landmark winery. With additional vineyards in Calistoga and Pope Valley, we craft single varietal and blended wines that showcase the essential taste of the vineyard.
