Maple Bacon Scones...revisited
Last night I wrote a post about making Maple Bacon Scones using a mix from Victorian House Scones. I need to update that entry.
I tried making the icing, pouring over the scones and then placing bacon into the still warm icing. This was not very satisfactory. As it cooled it hardened and I ended up smooshing the bacon bits into the icing. The bacon flavor was kind of hit and miss. I came up with a new method.
After you make the icing to your satisfaction, simply stir the bacon bits (real ones, not soy) into the icing and then drizzle or spoon over the scones that have cooled and are waiting patiently on the cooling rack.
