Recipe: Goat Cheese, Pear, and Black Pepper Scones

I love the idea of making traditionally sweet foods savory. So when I saw this recipe I knew I would be making it. Despite sounding very fancy, goat cheese and pears are not exactly high ticket items so this is a pretty cheap recipe if you need to impress something and on top of it all, this is also a one bowl recipe!
