I am back to my Carbquik experimentation, and I think that I have struck GOLD. My family often travels to Bend, Oregon, and we always stop at Bad Wolf Bakery. They have the most amazing savory scones ever. I always get the bacon, cheese, and green onion scones and savor them throughout the trip.
Today, I aimed to replicate them, and it went really well! They look biscuit, but they have more of the texture of scones (in my opinion). I LOVE how they turned out, and I will definitely be making these again. I think I will try to make them a little thicker next time.
- 2 cups Carbquik
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter, cold and cubed
- 3 strips of bacon, chopped and cooked
- 1 green onion, chopped
- 4 ounces cheddar cheese
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/3 cup sour cream or heavy whipping cream
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
Add the Carbquik to a bowl. Add the butter and cut it in with two knives or a pastry cutter so that it is distributed in smaller pieces throughout the mixture.
Add bacon, onion, and cheese and stir to combine. Add remaining ingredients and stir until fully combined.
With lightly greased hands, place the dough on a baking mat. It will be crumbly. Press the dough into a single, flat round. Cut into six wedges and pull them apart so there is about an inch in between.
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
