DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment.
  • Wisk 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 (or scallions) and bacon until evenly distributed.
  • 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.
  • Pat the dough into a smooth 7" disk about 3/4 inch thick. Transfer the dish 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 22-24 minutes, until they are golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and cool right onthe pan. Serve sarm or at room temperature.
