Sage and White Cheddar Scones

4 c unsifted flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp dried rubbed sage
1/4 tsp sweet paprika
2/3 c vegetable shortening
1 1/2 c shredded white cheddar cheese
1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
1 1/3 c milk
1 tbsp Dijon-style mustard
1 tbsp half and half

Heat oven to 425°F. Grease a large baking sheet and set aside. In a large
bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, sage and paprika. Using a pastry
blender or 2 knives, cut in the shortening until mixture resembles coarse
crumbs. Stir in 1 1/4 cups cheddar cheese and the parmesan.

In a 2-cup liquid measure, stir together milk and mustard.
Add to cheese mixture; mix lightly with a fork until mixture clings together and forms a soft dough.
Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently 5 or 6 times.
Divide in half.
Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll one dough half into a 7" round.
Cut into 4 wedges.
Repeat with remaining dough half.
Place wedges, spaced 1" apart, on prepared baking sheet.
With the tines of a fork, pierce tops.
Brush tops with half and half and sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese.

Bake scones until golden brown - 15-18 minutes. Serve warm.
