    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 425°F Lightly grease a baking sheet, or line it with parchment.
    2. 2
      Whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar.
    3. 3
      Work the butter into the flour until the mixture is unevenly crumbly.
    4. 4
      Mix in the cheese, chives, and bacon till evenly distributed.
    5. 5
      Add ¾ cup of the cream, stirring to combine. Try squeezing the dough together; if it’s crumbly and won’t hang together, or if there are crumbs remaining in the bottom of the bowl, add cream until the dough comes together. Transfer the shaggy dough to a well-floured work surface.
    6. 6
      Pat the dough into a smooth 7" disk about ¾" thick. Transfer the disk to the prepared baking sheet.
    7. 7
      Use a knife or bench knife to cut the disk into 8 wedges, spreading the wedges apart a bit on the pan.
    8. 8
      Brush the scones with a bit of cream; this will help their crust brown.
    9. 9
      Bake the scones for 20 to 25 minutes, until they’re golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and cool right on the pan. Serve warm, or at room temperature.

      I made these 'just because' and because I made them I was totally disinterested in my dinner. These are wonderful as a snack or for breakfast or soup and salad. Just great period! I diced the cheddar and followed the recipe as written other than reducing it for two of us. I just used regular organic, unbleached AP flour and couldn't be more pleased with the results. Thanks for posting this gem. Made for The Bistro Babes ZWT 8

      I received this recipe from a recent TOH Cooking School and made them for a ladies breakfast at church. Very good and straightforward to make. I highly recommend King Arthur Perfect Pastry Blend flour. The precooked bacon is also an easy shortcut. I'm not much of a baker, but these were easy enough for me and everyone enjoyed them. Thanks for posting the recipe Annacia!

      These were wonderful scones. I served them for breakfast and they were perfect for my boys, warm with a large glass of milk. Made for Photo Tag.
