Honey Apricot Scones – Celebrate the Sweetness of the Weekend!

I’ve been doing a little too much baking lately as a creative + cathartic outlet, and thought I’d share a long time favorite weekend scone recipe. Wishing you sunshine, smiles and moments of simple joy this weekend 🙂

Gather:

2 C flour

1/4 C local honey (side benefit- great for allergies!)

1/4 C chopped dried apricots (unsulfured Turkish apricots are best)

1/4 C raisins

1/4 C butter, cool room temperature cut into small squares

1 egg slightly beaten

1/4 C almond milk

2 t baking powder

1/4 t baking soda

1/2 t salt

Directions: Heat oven to 450. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add butter and lightly combine with fingers, leaving small pieces of butter. Stir in apricots and raisins. In another bowl, blend egg, milk and honey. Stir this wet mixture into flour and fruit mixture. Knead dough about 10 times on floured surface, adding a little extra flour if dough becomes too sticky. Roll into a circle and slice into pie shaped scone pieces. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes. These are delicious – I like to enjoy them with some French Press coffee and a tropical fruit salad!

Pic coming soon 🙂
