Bacon Cheddar Scones

Bacon Cheddar Scones | www.cookiesandcups.com

These Bacon Cheddar Scones are the perfect dinner side or simple breakfast!  Perfectly crunchy on the outside and soft and buttery on the inside.

I know these scones might not look like much.

But I am obsessed with them.  And basically all scones, frankly.

 

I was one of those people who said they didn’t like scones.  Well, that was because I had never had one done properly.

Scones must be crusty and flaky on the outside, while tender and buttery on the inside.

And I promise they aren’t as tricky as you would think!

 

Anyhow, in my quest to make the perfect scone I discovered the recipe for these savory scones.

I mean, bacon and cheddar?  How can it be bad?

 

Also, let me say that scones are the perfect lady food…and what I am doing today with a bunch of other blogger friends is participating in an online baby shower for our friend Jamie.

Jamie is the classy lady behind My Baking Addiction.  I have been a fan of hers for years and am SO happy that she is expecting a little baby baking addict.

 

So yeah.  Scones, babies and Jamie.

It’s a perfect day!

These have a few steps, but they are all simple. Promise.

Just fry up some bacon… You’ll want it nice and crispy.

Then chop it into bits…

Work that together until it forms a dough.

Work it out on a lightly floured surface into a circle.

Then place it on a baking sheet and brush with a little more cream…

Slice it into the traditional wedges…

And separate them to bake.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 heaping cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked until crisp and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp heavy cream, to brush on top
  • optional ~ 2 Tbsp chopped chives
  • optional ~ 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
  3. in a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and garlic powder (if adding). Using a pastry cutter, mix in the cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Stir in cheddar cheese. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl combine 3/4 cup heavy cream, chopped bacon and chives (If adding).
  5. Make a well in center of dry ingredients and pour heavy cream mixture into the well. Using your hands or a fork work the dough until it comes together adding the 2 Tbsp of extra heavy cream as needed. Dough will be slightly dry, but will hold together.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough for 1 minute and form into a circle, about 1 inch thick.
  7. Place dough onto prepared baking sheet and cut into 8 equal triangles. Separate the triangles and bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden.
  8. Serve warm.

The possibilities are endless. Try turkey/ham/cheddar, beef/caramelized onion/provolone, zucchini/sun dried tomato/asiago. They are all equally delicious.
