4 slices bacon, chopped
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 stick unsalted butter, cut into pieces
6 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup heavy cream, plus 2 tablespoons

Preheat oven to 400. In a medium skillet, cook the
bacon, stirring until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove
with a slotted spoon and drain well on paper towels.
Into a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking
powder, sugar and salt. Cut in the butter, cheese,
green onions, and pepper with a pastry blender or
fork, and work just until it starts to form lumps and
come together. Add the bacon. Add 1 cup of the
cream and work just until it becomes sticky dough,
being careful not to overwork.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and pat until it
comes together. Form into 2 large circles, about 7
inches in diameter and 3/4 inch thick and cut each
into 8 wedges with a sharp knife. Transfer to baking
sheet with spatula, leaving 1/2 inch space between
each wedge. Paint the tops of the wedges lightly
with the remaining 2 tablespoons of cream and bake
until golden brown, 22 to 23 minutes. Remove from
the oven and let cool slightly on the baking sheet.
Serve warm.
