Hey everyone! Sorry I have not blog in a long time. Well today I am blogging about this amazingly tasty recipe of apricot, pecan, and white chocolate scones. I got this recipe from a very dear friend. The scones and so yummy and are perfect for an afternoon tea or anytime really! I hope you enjoy!
Apricot, White Chocolate, and Pecan Scones
2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, chilled
1/2 cup cream (or half and half or milk)
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
6 ounces white chocolate, chopped into large chunks (approx 1/2 in)
1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1 cup dried apricots, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 375.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in cold butter with a pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs (I just put everything in the food processor and pulse a few times).
In a separate small bow, combine cream, egg, and vanilla. Add the cream mixture to the flour mixture and mix until barely combined. Add in the white chocolate, pecans, and apricots until it barely holds together. Dough may be sticky.
Turn the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or a baking mat. Pat dough into a thick circle- about 9 in around. Cut into 8 wedges. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.
