Ingredients

  • 4 – 5 bacon strips chopped
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter cold and diced
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream plus more for brushing
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon, stirring, until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well on paper towels. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Add the cold diced butter and using your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Mix the heavy cream and honey.
  4. Create a small well in the center of the flour mixture. Pour the cream mixture into the well, and stir with a fork until the dough comes together. Toss in crisp bacon and cheese.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Roll dough into a circle, about 3/4 of an inch thick, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 400º F.
  7. Cut circle into 8 wedges with a sharp knife.
  8. Transfer to baking sheet lined with parchment paper with a spatula, leaving 1/2-inch space between each wedge. Brush the tops of the wedges lightly with the remaining heavy cream.
  9. Bake for 20 to 23 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on the baking sheet.
  10. Serve warm.
