Dried Cherry Scones
From the Kitchen of Margot Bass
Easiest Scone Recipe I've ever used...make the dough the night before & you've got moist, yummy scones in the morning. The recipe is from a French breakfast & brunch cookbook. These are FABULOUS!!! I have made them with dried blueberries, raisins & they're even yummy plain :)
-3 cups all purpose flour
-1/2 cup sugar
-2 tablespoons baking powder
-1 1/2 teaspoons salt
-1 cup dried cherries
-2 cups heavy cream
-2 tablespoons milk
-1 cup powdered sugar
1. Sift together all the dry ingredients.
2. Add the dried cherries to the dry ingredients.
3. Make a well in the center of the floured mixture and pour in the heavy cream.
4. Take off your wedding rings & mix the dough with your hands.
5. Use a round cake pan and 2 pieces of parchment paper.
6. Press the dough into the cake pan between the 2 pieces of parchment.
7. Freeze the dough/in the pan for at least 2 hours. (I usually just leave it in the freezer overnight)
8. Let the dough thaw for 5 minutes on the counter.
9. Pull away the parchment, using a large kitchen knife cut the dough into triangles.
10. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes on a lightly sprayed cookie sheet
The scones are great as is, but they're even yummier if you drizzle the sugar glaze over the top while they're cooling. They also taste scrumptious with a light sprinkle of sugar on top! Enjoy :)
