4.25
Category : General

Yield: 1 Servings

Ingredients (Help):
2 c All-purpose flour
1 tb Baking powder
1/2 ts Salt
1/4 c Sugar
3/4 c Dried apricots,; chopped
1 1/4 c Heavy cream

-GLAZE-
3 tb Butter,; melted
2 tb Sugar

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Use an ungreased baking sheet.

Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl, stirring with
a fork to mix well. Add the dried apricots. Still using a fork, stir in the
cream and mix until the dough holds together in a rough mass (the dough
will be quite sticky).

Lightly flour a board and transfer the dough to it. Knead the dough 8 or 9
times. Pat into 2 circles about 6 inches round. For the glaze, spread the
butter over the top and side of the circle of dough and sprinkle the sugar
on top. Cut each circle into 8 wedges and place each piece on the baking
sheet, allowing about an inch between pieces.

Bake for about 11 minutes, or until golden brown.

Yield: 12 scones
