    teapotter's Note:

    I wanted to try using the fresh sage that has been growing in my garden for 6 years and has never been used when I came across an interesting biscuit recipe in my files clipped from Gourmet magazine's Feb 1997 issue. I prefer scones so I adapted the recipe. I served these with our Canadian Thanksgiving dinner and they were a big hit. My picky eater son asked me to make them again which really surprised me since I thought the sage would scare him off. You must use fresh sage for these. Dried just won't give the same result. Prep time is my estimate.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 450 F and grease or line with parchment a large baking sheet.
    2. 2
      Into a large bowl sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt.
    3. 3
      Cut in butter until it resembles meal.
    4. 4
      Stir in sage, bacon and cheddar until well distributed.
    5. 5
      Blend eggs with 2/3 cup buttermilk and stir into the dry ingredients with enough of the remaining buttermilk (and a few extra tbsp of buttermilk if needed) until the mixture just forms a dough (it will be just slightly sticky).
    6. 6
      Gather into a ball and knead very gently about 3 or 4 times (I do this right in the bowl).
    7. 7
      Divide dough into 3 approximately equal parts.
    8. 8
      Pat each part of dough into a thick circle about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch thick on a lightly floured surface.
    9. 9
      With a sharp knife cut into 6 to 8 wedges.
    10. 10
      Place scones about 1 inch apart on prepared pan.
    11. 11
      Brush tops with a little cream or evaporated milk, this helps with browning and can be omitted if desired.
    12. 12
      Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes or until done and golden.
