How to Make Scallion and Bacon Scones: A Delicious Savory Treat

Q: Can I use salted butter instead of unsalted butter?
A: Yes, but reduce the additional salt in the recipe accordingly.

Q: Is it necessary to sift the flour and baking powder?
A: Sifting helps to aerate the mixture and distribute the baking powder evenly, resulting in a lighter texture.

Q: Can I add cheese to this recipe?
A: Absolutely! Cheese can add a nice flavor. Just fold in grated cheese when you add the bacon and scallions.

Q: How do I know when the scones are done baking?
A: They should be golden brown on the outside and the bottom should sound hollow when tapped.
