Bacon and Dried Tomato Scones
Ingredients
  • 3/4  cup  dried tomatoes (not oil-packed)
  • 2 1/2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 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
  • 1/2  cup  shredded mozzarella cheese
  •  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.
