    BACON CHEDDAR CHEESE SCONES

    Ingredients needed:

    4 slices bacon, chopped
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    1 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces
    6 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated (about 1 1/2 cups)
    1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 cup heavy cream, plus 2 tablespoons

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

    In a medium skillet, cook the bacon, stirring, until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well on paper towels. Into a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut in the butter, cheese, green onions, and pepper with a pastry blender or fork, and work just until it starts to form lumps and come together. Add the bacon. Add 1 cup of the cream and work just until it becomes a sticky dough, being careful not to overwork.

    Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and pat until it comes together. Form into 2 large circles, about 7 inches in diameter and 3/4 inch thick and cut each into 8 wedges with a sharp knife. Transfer to baking sheet with a spatula, leaving 1/2-inch space between each wedge. Paint the tops of the wedges lightly with the remaining 2 tablespoons of cream and bake until golden brown, 22 to 23 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on the baking sheet. Serve warm.

    Yield: 16 scones

    i need to get a pastry blender. a fork works, but it's too much work.

    i forgot to add, i made this recipe w/ whole (red cap) milk, which is the milk i always drink...so cream is not necessary.

    do you think that sending these overseas would be an issue since they have meat in them?
