Bacon & Cheese Scones

Ingredients

5-6 Tablespoons Butter

1 ¾ cups flour

2 ½ teaspoons baking powder

¼ teaspoon salt

½ cup cooked, crumbled bacon

½ cup grated cheese

5 Tablespoons (more or less) half-and-half

1 egg, beaten

Directions

Combine flour with other dry ingredients.  Cut butter into dry ingredients until mixture resembles fine crumbs.  Mix in cheese and bacon.  Stir in egg and just enough half-and-half so that dough leaves side of bowl and begins to form a ball.

Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly 10 times.  Pat into a ½ inch thick round.  Cut into 8 wedges and place on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes.

Remove immediately from pan when done.  Serve hot or cold.
