My daughter called this morning, she needed TLC. So I gathered the troops for her favourite treat bacon-brown sugar scones
Turn oven on at 400f Cut smoked bacon thinly, or buy already sliced.
Brown sugar for the bacon
Sprinkle bacon with brown sugar and pepper
Bake for 15-20 min. Keep an eye on the bacon after 15 min. You want it Krispy not burned
I use cloth to wrap bacon before putting it in the fridge
I also pack my cheese in cloth
Combine all dry ingredients in mixing bowl.
Add cubed butter
By now the bacon is done. Don't use your fingers.
Scrape goo together
Pour into yoghurt egg mix
Rub the butter into the flour
Stirr yoghurt egg bacon goo together. Yes Im using the measuring spoon to stirr with
Add fluids to dry
Use your hand to combine dough, don't over work dough, you don't want gluten to form , you want the scones to be crumbly, not chewy
Roll and cut
Put back on baking tray, reuse the baking paper used for the bacon.
I only baked half of the portion. You can at this point freeze the dough in scones shape, take out in the evening, put in fridge over night, bake in the morning.
Rest of dough going to my daughter, with coffee for me, and a jar of marmalade as a side treat.
Are we going to have some? Me: no
