BACON AND MAPLE SCONES
These Bacon and Maple scones are perfect for breakfast on the go! The family will love these sweet and savory scones!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbs sugar
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/3 cup cold unsalted butter (cut into 1/4-inch cubes)
- 1/3 cup cold milk
- 1 egg
- 3 Tbs pure maple syrup (divided)
- 8 pieces bacon (cooked and cut into 1/4-inch pieces)
- 2 Tbs whipping cream
In a medium-sized bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add the butter, working it with your fingers or a fork, until the mixture is crumbly. Whisk together the egg, milk, and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. Add to dry ingredients, along with the bacon. Mix until everything is evenly combined (the texture will be a little crumbly).
Transfer dough to a piece of parchment or a lightly floured work surface. Pat into a 9-inch square a little over 1/2-inch thick. Cut the dough into nine 3-inch squares. Then cut each square into two triangular wedges, for a total of 18 scones. Place the scones in the freezer on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 425°.
Combine remaining 2 tablespoons maple syrup with whipping cream and brush on chilled scones. Bake for 12-17 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm.
