Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

(1) 6 oz. bag of dried apricots, finely chopped
1/4 cup sugar + 2 Tablespoons Sugar
2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Zest of 1 entire lemon
1 1/3 cups heavy cream


Preheat oven to 425. I don't have a scone pan, so I lined a jellyroll pan with parchment paper.

Combine apricots with 2 Tablespoons of sugar, mix well and set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt and mix well. Then stir in apricots and lemon zest.

Add cream to make a coarse dough.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and press until dough comes together. Separate into 4 pieces, working each of the 4 until they make a 4 inch square. Cut each into 4 triangular pieces.

Place all triangles onto the parchment covered pan and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake scones approximately 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
