DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F Lightly grease a baking sheet, or line it with parchment.
  • Whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar.
  • Work the butter into the flour until the mixture is unevenly crumbly.
  • Mix in the cheese, chives, and bacon till evenly distributed.
  • 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.
  • Pat the dough into a smooth 7" disk about ¾" thick. Transfer the disk to the prepared baking sheet.
  • Use a knife or bench knife to cut the disk into 8 wedges, spreading the wedges apart a bit on the pan.
  • Brush the scones with a bit of cream; this will help their crust brown.
  • 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.
  • Yield: 8 large scones.
