Bacon and Dried Tomato Scones

Ingredients
3/4
cup dried tomatoes (not oil-packed)
2 1/2
1
tablespoon baking powder
1
teaspoon dried basil, crushed
1
teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/4
teaspoon garlic salt
3/4
cup butter, cut up
8
slices bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled
1/4
cup sour cream
2
eggs, lightly beaten
2
tablespoons milk
 
Crisp-cooked bacon, crumbled (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place tomatoes in a bowl. Add enough boiling water to cover. Let stand 5 minutes. Drain well; chop tomatoes.
  2. In large bowl combine flour, baking powder, basil, oregano, and garlic salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in chopped tomatoes and bacon. Make a well in center of flour mixture; set aside. In small bowl combine sour cream, eggs, and milk; add all at once to flour mixture. Stir with a fork just until moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough gently 10 to 12 strokes or until dough holds together. Divide in half. Pat or lightly roll each dough half to a 7-inch circle. Cut each circle in 8 wedges.
  3. Place wedges 2 inches apart on a very large ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes. Sprinkle tops of scones with cheese. Bake 7 to 8 minutes more or until tops are lightly browned. Serve warm. Top with additional crumbled bacon. Makes 16 scones.
