Little Cherry Scones

  • 2 1/2 cups Baking Mix
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 3 tbsp sugar – plus more for sprinkling
  • 3/4 cup cold milk
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 3/4 cup dried cherries
  • Lemon Curd – optional but recommended

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Stir together baking mix, 3 tbsp sugar, lemon zest, and dried cherries in a medium bowl.

Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the butter and milk. Stir with a spoon until just barely mixed – mixing too much will make your scones tough!

Spoon or scoop heaping tablespoons of dough onto an oiled or parchment-lined baking sheet.

Sprinkle tops of scones with a bit of sugar and bake for about 12 minutes or until lightly-browned around the edges.

Serve warm, if possible, with lemon curd.
