I’ve recently made Rose’s recipe for Flaky Cream Cheese Scones, and was hoping to swap out the plain cream cheese for some savoury cream cheese, and replace the lemon & blueberries with paprika and bacon.
I’m worried that the fat from the bacon might have an impact on the rise (ex. extra fat/moisture) of the scones - should I be concerned if I’ve cooked and cooled the bacon before adding to the mix? I don’t want to waste ingredients!
The recipe also calls for a little bit of honey; I was going to keep that, even with the savoury ingredients, unless someone can recommend a substitute!
