Bacon, Cheese & Scallion Scones

I haven't prepared these scones yet -- just came across the recipe on the Internet and wanted to get it posted since I didn't see the recipe on the site. I'm not familiar with the King Arthur All-Purpose flour -- so will probably just use regular unbleached all-purpose flour when I make them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment.
  2. Wisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar.
  3. Work the butter into the flour until the mixture is unevenly crumbly.
  4. Mix in the cheese, chives (or scallions) and bacon until evenly distributed.
  5. Add 3/4 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. Pat the dough into a smooth 7" disk about 3/4 inch thick. Transfer the dish to the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Use a knife or bench knife to cut the disk into 8 wedges, spreading the wedges apart a bit on the pan.
  8. Brush the scones with a bit of cream; this will help their crust brown.
  9. Bake the scones for 22-24 minutes, until they are golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and cool right onthe pan. Serve sarm or at room temperature.

These are wonderful! I used scallion (green onion) instead of the chives. I made these up in my food processor. Quick and easy! I only ended up using about 1/2 cup of cream. I shredded my cheese but I think next time I will coarsely chop it instead so there are bigger bites of cheese and I will also leave my bacon crumbled in bigger pieces. I baked it for 22 minutes but next time I will start checking them at about 18 min. I brushed the tops with some cream and they got very brown.
