Light, flaky and studded with dried cherries, pistachios and dark chocolate chips.
Preheat your oven to 400 F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the chopped cherries and pistachios in a small bowl and toss with an eighth cup of all purpose flour and set aside.
Combine the two eggs and the 1/2 cup of milk in a small bowl, set aside.
In a large bowl combine the remaining two cups of flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Drop in the cold butter and using a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse, wet sand.
Add the egg/milk mixture into the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Fold in the nuts, cherries and dark chocolate chips.
Flour a clean surface and rolling pin. Drop the dough down on to the floured surface and knead into a ball. Use your rolling pin and roll the dough out to a half-inch thick. Use a 3-inch round cutter and cut as many circles of dough you can. Use the scraps to make more scones.
In a small bowl whisk together one whole egg and two tablespoons whole milk to make the egg wash.
Brush with the egg wash and bake for 15-18 minutes or until the tops are golden, rotate the pan halfway through baking. Remove the scones immediately to a wire rack and let cool.
Combine the glaze ingredients in a small bowl and when the scones have cooled, dunk the tops into the glaze.
