Cherry Scones

Ingredients

For scones you will need:
2 cups AP flour
½ cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, chopped
¾ cups whipping cream
¼ cup milk
1/3 cup cherry preserves
For glaze you will need:
Juice of ½ lemon
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon water

Preparation

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
2
In food processor combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and butter. Transfer to a medium bowl, and gradually stir in cream and milk until a soft dough forms. Roll out dough on a well floured surface, about ½-inch thick. Using a round cookie cutter, cut out the dough and place on prepared baking sheets. Next, using your index finger or a small, round spoon, gently make an indentation in the center of each pastry. Fill with about ½ teaspoon of cherry preserves, and bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until the edges are golden. Transfer onto a cooling rack.

For the glaze, combine lemon juice, powdered sugar and water in a small bowl. Using a teaspoon, drizzle glaze over each scone and let the glazed set, about 30 minutes.
