    16 scones

Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots

  • TOPPING:
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in cold butter until the size of peas. Stir in apricots and rosemary.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and whipping cream until blended. Stir into flour-butter mixture just until moistened.

    Apricots and rosemary go together so wonderfully!! I used dried rosemary as I did not have any fresh on hand but next time I will use fresh for sure. On half the recipe I omitted the sugar topping and they were great as well. I put this in my keeper file!!!!
