To make about 12 cheddar bacon biscuits, start by cooking bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels and then finely chop.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, chipotle powder and salt.
Cut Cabot Unsalted Butter into large pieces and add to the flour mixture. Using a pastry blender (or two knives), cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add grated Cabot Sharp Cheddar cheese, scallions and reserved bacon and mix lightly. Stir in milk just until no dry flour remains (be careful not to over-mix).
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into a ½-inch-thick circle. Cut out 2½-inch circles. Place circles on prepared baking sheet, leaving space in between each circle. Press scraps together and cut out additional biscuits.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes, then enjoy!
