Apricot Lemon Scones
  • (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
  1. Preheat oven to 425. I don't have a scone pan, so I lined a jellyroll pan with parchment paper.
  2. Combine apricots with 2 Tablespoons of sugar, mix well and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt and mix well. Then stir in apricots and lemon zest.
  4. Add cream to make a coarse dough.
  5. 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.
  6. Place all triangles onto the parchment covered pan and sprinkle with sugar.
  7. Bake scones approximately 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
  8. Enjoy!!!
