Chocolate-Cherry Scones

Tonight, I made scones. They look so delicious that I thought I would share the recipe in case you want to try it. It was much easier than I thought it would be!

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup whipping cream, divided
  • Wax Paper

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Stir together the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender until crumbly and mixture resembles small peas. Freeze 5 minutes. Add 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. cream, cherries, and chocolate - stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. 

2. Turn dough out onto wax paper; gently press of pat dough into a 7-inch round (mixture will be crumbly). Cut round into 8 wedges. Place wedges 2 inches apart on a lightly greased baking sheet (or line your baking sheet with a silicone baking mat). Brush tops of wedges with remaining cream just until moistened.

3. Bake at 450 degrees for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.
