Since I have started cooking, I’ve learned I like all sorts of things I have never enjoyed when store bought. So, I started experimenting with scones.
Servings: 8Prep Time: 15 min Cook Time: 13-15 min
2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into 1/4 inch squares
1/4 cup dried apricots, chopped
1/4 cup dried candied ginger, chopped
1/2 cup fresh cranberries
1 cup heavy cream, 2 Tbsp reserved (water or milk works just fine)
Mix the first 4 ingredients in a bowl, pour into the food processor.
Using the pastry blade, combine the chilled butter with dry ingredients until the dough clumps into pea-sized balls.
Add 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream.
Blend until well combined.
Add in ginger, apricots, and cranberries, mix well.
Remove dough from food processor, and form dough into a circle on a Silpat or lightly greased pan.
Using a large knife, cut the dough into 8 wedges.
Arrange wedges on Silpat, about 2 inches apart.
Brush the tops of the wedges with the remaining heavy cream.
Bake at 450 degrees for 13-15 minutes.
