Cherry Chocolate Chip Scones Preparation
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in cold butter.
In another bowl, mix together the buttermilk and egg then add to the dry ingredients. Don't over mix the dough.
Stir in the dried fruit and chocolate chips. Pour dough out onto floured surface and press into a ball. Flatten down with palm of the hand. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Remove from the refrigerator and return to floured surface and roll dough out to a 1/2 inch thickness. Cut the dough into triangles. Brush the tops of the scones with some extra buttermilk. Sprinkle the tops with the raw sugar. Place on a non-stick baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Dried fruit of any kind can be used. Add pecans or walnuts for a variety.
