Sour cherry scones ~ pretty in pink

Clapping my hands like a little kid!!  I love myself!  Sour cherry scones.  The only way I would be happier is if someone made them for me, still using this recipe.  No.  No, no, no, no.   I want to make them.  That makes me happiest.  Yep, yep, yep.  I wanna bake for the world, feed my spirit.

This is one of those things that ups my challenge of resisting more than one...I like eating these quite a bit.  

Sour cherry scones ~

2 c. flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
6 T. butter, diced
2/3 c. heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 c. whole frozen sour cherries, not thawed.  After measuring, slice them.  

  • In a separate small bowl, beat egg until nicely loose, add vanilla, add cream.  Set aside.
  • Mix flour, baking powder, sugar, salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Cut in butter.  Either by hand or mixer with a paddle attachment.
  • Add wet ingredients, mix until almost combined.
  • Add the frozen cherries, mix just until incorporated.
  • Remove to a floured surface.  Pat to a height of an inch or more.  Cut in six wedges.
  • Brush tops with cream, sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 18-25 minutes, depending on the cold status of the frozen berries, how dark you like your scones.  Touch them in the middle, they will spring back when done.
