Ingredients

Cheese

Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Alpine-Style can be used in this recipe.

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Line a 15 x 10-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles pea-sized crumbs.
  3. Toss in the alpine style, prosciutto and green onions. Whisk 3/4 cup cream and egg in a small bowl; add to flour mixture just until moistened and a dough forms.
  4. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead just to combine. Shape dough into an 8-inch round, about 3/4-inch thick. Cut into eight wedges.
  5. Transfer wedges to prepared pan. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Brush dough with remaining cream.
  6. Bake for 22-24 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with butter.
