  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Mix flour and baking powder in large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add 2 of the eggs and the cream; beat with wire whisk until well blended. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moistened. Stir in cheese, bacon and chives. Shape into ball.
  • Knead dough on lightly floured surface 10 times. Roll out to 12x6-inch rectangle. Cut into 8 (3-inch) squares; cut each square diagonally in half. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Beat remaining egg and the water with wire whisk until well blended; brush over dough triangles.
  • Bake 14 to 16 min. or until lightly browned. Serve warm.

    O my god. I love scones, especially savory ones, which are quite uncommon in my part of Britain. This is great and I make it very often!

    I tweaked the recipe just a bit when I made it, and my family absolutely LOVED it! :) 1. used authentic Irish Cheddar in place of the sharp cheddar - fab flavor! much more rich 2. doubled amount of chives 3. used an entire pound of bacon - everyone loves bacon! :) 4. added a tablespoon of garlic powder. could also add fresh, chopped garlic, I just didn't happen to have any on hand. 5. substituted whole wheat flour for white. gave a wonderful flavor will most certainly make these again and again!

    Delicious and very easy to make. I'm not a baker, and even *I* didn't mess these up. Great flavor and excellent texture.
