  • 15 ml (1 tbsp.) baking powder
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp.) sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 5 ml (1 tsp.) salt
  • 2.5 ml (½ tsp.) freshly ground pepper

Preparation
  1. Preheat oven at 180ºC (350ºF). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, mix egg and buttermilk.
  3. In a food processor, combine flour, Crème OKA, butter, baking powder, salt, sugar and fresh pepper. Mix at pulse 4 to 6 times.
  4. Add liquid (egg & buttermilk). Mix again at pulse 2 to 3 times.
  5. Transfer mix in a bowl and add shallot, bacon and shredded OKA.
  6. Hand mix and form a ball. Refrigerate.
  7. To cut scones, the batter mix must be cold. Roll dough in a rectangle of about 2.5 cm thick and cut in 8 triangular pieces.
  8. Place scones on baking sheet. Bake on middle rack for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • NOTE: Dough can be kept in the freezer, well wrapped, for 1 month.
