Cherry-Lemon Scones

If you are using maraschino cherries in this recipes make sure you drain them completely and dry them with a paper towel or the dough may become too wet.

 

Ingredients:

6 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoon of sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup dried or candied cherries, chopped
1 large egg
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
Cream to brush
Cinnamon and sugar to sprinkle 

Directions:

Position a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Have ready a large ungreased baking sheet.

In a large bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cut the butter into flour mixture with 2 knives, tossing pieces of butter with the flour mixture to coat and separate them as you work. The largest pieces should be about the size of peas and the mixture should resemble breadcrumbs. Work quickly. Do not allow the the butter to melt or form a paste with the flour. Stir in the dried or candied cherries.

In a separate bowl whisk the egg, heavy cream, and lemon zest. Make a well in the center of the butter-flour mixture and pour in the egg mixture. Using one hand, draw in dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Wash your hands and dust them with flour.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Gently knead a few times to gather dough into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, press the dough into a circle about 3/4 inch thick. Cut out triangular wedges with a floured cookie cutter or sharp knife. Place the scones 1 inch apart on the ungreased baking sheet.

Brush the tops with extra cream. Sprinkle tops with cinnamon and sugar. Bake until the tops are golden brown, 12 to 17 minutes. Let cool on rack or serve warm.
