DIRECTIONS

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Drizzle in the melted butter, and stir well. Stir in the cheddar, ham or bacon, chives, and chopped pepper.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and the heavy cream.
  • Add the creams to the dry ingredients and stir just until everything is moistened and the dough sticks together.
  • Turn the dough out on to a floured surface. Using your floured hands, form the dough into 2 rounds that are 1 inch thick and 6-7 inches in diameter. Cut each round into 8 wedges, then transfer all to the prepared baking sheet.
  • Freeze at least 10 minutes, if baking immediately. Or freeze until firm and place in a ziplock baggie until ready to serve.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place frozen scones evenly spaced about 2 inches apart, on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle the scones with a small amount of shredded cheese if desired.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until golden and slightly firm, but not too brown.
  • Serve warm.
