Bake some delicious and simple melt in your mouth savory scones with carmelized onion, pancetta and figs. You will love these for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Cook the pancetta in a skillet on medium heat until the pieces begin to brown. Transfer the pancetta to a plate lined with paper towel. Save the pancetta grease.
To caramelize the onions, saute onion slices in the pancetta grease until translucent. Sprinkle with the brown sugar, pepper and cayenne pepper then turn down the heat to medium-low. Allow to cook for about 45 minutes uncovered. Stir occasionally.
Preheat oven to 425°F.
In a food processor place flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Pulse a few times to combine all the ingredients.
Add in the butter and continue to pulse until the mixture forms resembles a coarse meal. Do not over pulse or you will end up with a ball of dough.
Transfer dough to a floured surface, and knead the dough until it comes together. The dough will be moist, but able to be rolled.
