DIRECTIONS

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