DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees with rack in middle.
  • Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Scatter butter on top and blend with your fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Mix in dried cherries.
  • Whisk together egg and cream in a small bowl, then fold into flour mixture until dough just comes together (dough will be quite delicate).
  • Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface. With floured hands press into a 1 inch thick rectangle. Use a 3 inch round cookie cutter and cut into rounds and arrange 2 inches apart on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Gather scraps and cut out additional scones.
  • Brush tops of scones with additional cream and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake scones, rotating baking sheet halfway through baking, until tops are golden, 25-30 minutes. Cool on a rack about 10 minutes before serving. They are also good the next day!
