"Scone Recipe I got off the King Arthur Flour Baking Circle. com site"
( preferably Kosher)
1 1/4 cups
1 -2 tablespoon
melted butter, for brushing top
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Measure dry ingredients and mix together in a bowl with a fork. Add dried fruit and mix so that fruit does not stick together.
Add cream and stir until a dough forms. Gather dough together in bowl and turn out onto work surface dusted with flour. Knead 8 - 10 times until dough holds together.
Pat dough into a circle approximately 10" in diameter and brush top with melted butter. At this point I sometimes sprinkle the top with coarse sugar. Cut dough into 12 triangles and place on buttered sheet pan (or use parchment paper on the sheet pan). Bake for 15 minutes until just golden. Transfer to cooling rack.
