Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 cup whipping cream, divided
  • 3/4 cup (3 oz.) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cooked bacon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Wax paper

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 450°. Stir together first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender until crumbly and mixture resembles small peas. Freeze 5 minutes. Add 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. cream, cheese, bacon, chives, and pepper, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  2. 2. Turn dough out onto wax paper; gently press or pat dough into a 7-inch round (mixture will be crumbly). Cut round into 8 wedges. Place wedges 2 inches apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush tops of wedges with remaining 2 Tbsp. cream just until moistened.
  3. 3. Bake at 450° for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden.
