WWII Era Savory Carrot Scones with Bacon Recipe

I love WWII recipes, my [currently] absolute favorite ones are WWII Recipe: The Welsh Cakes, Apple Crumble Pie In A Skillet, and this delicious, filling and easy-to-make WWII Era Savory Carrot Scones With Bacon Recipe. Women often used bacon fat in place of butter, and grated carrot to partially replace flour."
