DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Butter a baking sheet.
  • In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  • Using your fingertips or a pastry blender, blend the butter into the dry ingredients, until the mixture becomes crumbly.
  • Add the orange zest, apricots and pecans and toss to combine.
  • Stir in the buttermilk until the dough is rough and shaggy.
  • Gather the dough together and place on a liberally floured work surface.
  • Gently knead about 10 times.
  • Divide the dough in half and pat each piece into a circle about 7 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick.
  • Glaze each by brushing with cream and sprinkling on sugar.
  • Cut each round into eight pie-shaped wedges.
  • Place the scones, barely touching, on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake 15-18 minutes, until puffy and golden.
