Bacon Cheddar Scallion Scones

3 C. flour

1 T. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. black pepper

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

1 stick butter, cut into small pieces, about 5 ounces of cheddar, grated

4 green onions

10 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled

3/4 C. buttermilk

1 large egg


Preheat oven to 400°. Combine dry ingredients (flour through cayenne). Add in butter and work with your hands to combine – press butter between your fingers to form thin sheets. Add cheese, green onions, and buttermilk, and mix together. Add bacon and egg and mix until all the ingredients are incorporated. Turn dough out onto a flat surface and knead a few times to smooth out the dough. Form dough into a ball, then flatten into a 1/2-inch thick disk. Cut the disk into wedges. Spread wedges across a parchment-lined baking sheet, leaving a little room around them. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until the bottom of the scones start to brown and the cheese in the scone begins to turn golden. Best served warm
