- Preheat oven to 425degrees. Use an ungreased baking sheet. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl, stirring with a fork to mix well. Add the dried fruit. Still using a fork, stir in the cream and mix until the dough holds together in a rough mass (the dough will be quite sticky). Lightly flour a board and transfer the dough to it. Knead the dough 8 or 9 times. Pat into a circle about 10 inches round. For the glaze, spread the butter over the top and side of the circle of dough and sprinkle sugar on top. Cut circle into 12 wedges and place each piece on the baking sheet, allowing 1-inch between pieces. Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.;\
OATMEAL SCONES WITH DRIED APRICOTS AND CRANBERRIES
I found this recipe on the New York Daily News website. One of the reasons I like this recipe so much is that it uses the food processor, which combines the scone dough beautifully. If you don't have a food processor you can use your hands, and I can guarantee a good workout in the process. Another reason I like this recipe is because it uses dried cranberries (craisins). I love these little babies.

- The dough for scones, like that of biscuits, should be handled as little as possible. Cut out scones by pressing straight through the dough with a bench scraper (or with a biscuit cutter). Brush the tops with heavy cream or beaten egg, then sprinkle with sanding sugar so the scones glisten when they come out of the oven.
Popular served with tea in Victorian days, scones are making a big comeback. Apricots and nuts are stirred into the batter in this recipe I baked for the theme shower. Spread with Devonshire cream, they delighted the bride-to-be and guests. -Robin Fuhrman, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin
