Cherry Almond Scones

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

One sunny morning, eating a nice, not too sweet, not too plain, yummy scone...

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp almond or vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup half-n-half
  • 1/4-1/2 cup cherries
  • 1/4 cup almonds, crushed (just enough to not be too small or powder-like)
Preheat oven to 350, Mix all dry ingredients. Cut butter in until crumbly. Add vanilla and half-n-half. Mix well. Roll out on floured surface with dough roller. Cut into circles or, in our case, leaves :). Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar, Bake for 25 min.

We served ours with Creme Fraiche and home-made berry jam. I believe we all had one for breakfast, and another for snack in the late afternoon. Our family likes these ALMOST more than daddy's not-so-secret cookie recipe for dessert. This is our favorite breakfast item. :)
