Maple Bacon Scones

I had some leftover bacon from a bread recipe that I tried out and I am soooo glad because that gave me just enough bacon to try out the Maple Bacon Scones!!

Okay, I just have to say that while you are baking these in the over, you mights just die over how scrumptious they make you house smell...and they are just as delicious!

I will absolutely make these again!

This recipe is from The Wood and Spoon Katie's recipes are some of my most favorites, she has lots of my go-to cake recipes as well that I am sure I will get to share sooner or later on here!


So check out her site for more deliciousness, but in the meantime, try these scones out!

Here is the recipe -


INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups (260 gm) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ cup (113 gm) unsalted butter, cold and chopped
  • 1 cup cooked, finely chopped crispy bacon
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) maple syrup
  • ¾ cup (180 mL) whipping cream, plus additional for brushing

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, pepper, and onion powder. Use a pastry cutter or the back of two forks to cut the butter into the dry ingredients until pea-sized clumps are throughout. Stir in the bacon. Combine the maple syrup and the whipping cream in a separate bowl and then stir into the dry ingredients, just until evenly incorporated. If a lot of dry ingredients remain in the bottom of the bowl you can add an additional tablespoon of cream, but be sure to not add too much liquid.
  2. Pat the dough out in a ¾” thick circle and place the dough round on a parchment lined baking pan in the freezer to chill for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  3. Once the dough is chilled, cut the dough into 8 wedges but leave the circle of pieces together. Use a pastry brush to brush a thin layer of whipping cream over the scones. Bake in the oven until golden brown around the edges of each scone, about 35 minutes.

NOTES

Chilling the dough ensures the scones will rise well. You can skip this step but it isn’t recommended for best outcomes.
