Ingredients (8 large scones)
- 2 cups flour
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 6 tablespoons cold butter
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 teaspoons maple essence
- 6 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
- 1 teaspoon granulated maple sugar
- 3 oz. Baker's semi sweet chocolate squares
InstructionsFor the scones
Preheat oven to 425º F.
In a small bowl add vinegar to the milk and set aside until it forms curds, about 5-10 minutes.
In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Cut up butter and add to flour mixture.
Then add egg, milk mixture, and maple essence and mix until completely incorporated.
Next mix in the crumbled bacon. The batter will be a dough like consistency.
Take the dough and roll it into one big ball. Place the ball onto a lightly floured surface and flatten out to about an inch thick. With a knife or pizza cutter, divide the dough circle into equal triangles. I made eight big scones, but you can make yours a little smaller if you like.
Sprinkle the top of the triangles with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and the granulated maple sugar.
Separate the triangles and place on a cookie sheet.
Bake at 425ºF for 15 minutes or until tops are golden.For the topping
When scones have cooled off, melt the chocolate in a glass container in the microwave at 30 second intervals until completely melted. Place melted chocolate in a piping bag or a Ziplock bag with tip cut off and drizzle over the tops of the scones. Let the chocolate set and then it's time to eat and enjoy!
