Bacon & Brew Scones

I love scones. My husband does now. This is a traditional scone but with a lot more flavor with smokey bacon, sharp cheddar, rich stout, and sour cream. These are best served warm, but when cooled, they make a great bread for breakfast sandwiches.

Ingredients

3 1/2 c
all purpose flour
4 Tbsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 c
butter-cut into small pieces
1/2 c
milk
1/2 c
stout (like guinness)
1/2 c
sour cream
1 lb
bacon-fried crisp & crumbled
2 c
shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter. Stir in bacon and shredded cheddar. Mix milk and sour cream in a cup. Add stout. Mix liquid into flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Turn out onto a floured surface. With extra flour available for handling, press dough into a 1 inch thick and 6 inch wide rectangle. This may take repeating several times to use all of the dough. Cut the dough with a sharp knife into triangles. Place dough triangles on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Brush with egg wash made from one egg white and 1 TBSP water.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until lightly brown. Remove from oven and cool.
