Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray, or grease with shortening. In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, black pepper, salt and red pepper. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through mixture in opposite directions), until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in cheese, bacon and shallot.
  • 2 In small bowl, beat buttermilk and egg with fork or whisk. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the buttermilk mixture. Stir remaining buttermilk mixture into crumb mixture; mix with floured hands until dough forms a ball. For tender scones, handle dough as little as possible.
  • 3 Place dough on lightly floured surface. Pat dough into 8-inch round; cut into 8 wedges. Place wedges 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Brush with reserved buttermilk mixture.
  • 4 Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

For easier cleanup, line the cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper. Look for it in either the baking area or storage-wrap aisle of your grocery store.

If you don’t have time to cook the bacon, shop for precooked bacon, which is available in slices in the meat section of your grocery store or as bits or pieces near the salad topping ingredients.
