6 slices bacon, diced
10 oz all purpose flour (2 cups)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
5 oz cheddar cheese, grated
3 scallions, chopped
5 tbsp butter, cubed
2/3 cup heavy cream (plus or minus a tablespoon)
Cook the bacon in a skillet until crisp, then drain on a paper towel and let cool completely.
Whisk to combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Stir in the cheddar, scallions, and bacon.
Work the butter cubes in with your fingertips, until you get pea sized pieces of butter coated in the flour mixture. Make a well in the center and pour in the heavy cream.
