Cheese and Bacon Scones Recipe by @Donna_Fasano

Hello! Donna Fasano here. Recently, a good friend of mine told me she’d made a batch of cheese and bacon scones, and the recipe sounded SO delicious, I had to try it for myself. For my first batch, I used cheddar cheese. I will soon try the recipe using Swiss cheese and I’m certain that will taste good, too. The result of my Cheddar Cheese and Bacon Scones adventure was a light, flaky, and extremely flavorful biscuit-like treat. As you can see from the picture, I cut my scones into triangles rather than the circles called for in the recipe. (When I traveled to Europe, every scone I ate was 3-sided not circular. But you cut yours however you wish.) I hope you enjoy this recipe.

Cheese and Bacon Scones

Makes 1 dozen

1 3/4 cups sifted all purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

6 T butter

1 cup shredded Swiss or Cheddar cheese

6 slices bacon crisply fried and crumbled

1 egg

1/2 cup buttermilk


Preheat oven to 425°. Lightly grease cookie sheet. 

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Add the butter in chunks and work into the dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the bacon and cheese. 

Mix the egg and buttermilk together and add them to the dry ingredients. Mix until a soft dough forms. 

Roll the dough on a floured board to a 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out circles with a cookie cutter. Place scones on cookie sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until scones are golden and well risen.
