Description

These cherry vanilla scones are the perfect breakfast treat. Lightly sweetened, deliciously buttery, fall-apart-in-your-hands tender, and full of dried cherries and vanilla bean.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Butter, Cold
  • 2-¾ cups All-purpose Flour
  • ⅓ cups Sugar
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¾ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup Dried Cherries
  • 1 cup Plus 3 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Paste

Preparation

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cut cold butter into 1/4-inch cubes. Put the butter in a bowl and place in the freezer for 15 minutes.

In a medium bowl, stir flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Remove butter from the freezer and add it into the dry ingredients. Combine, using your fingertips to pinch the butter into the flour mixture until it becomes a coarse crumbly mixture. The butter will be the size of small pebbles. Alternatively, you can use a pastry blender. If you feel the butter becoming soft during the mixing, put the bowl in the fridge for 10 minutes, then continue.

Stir in the dried cherries. Add cold heavy cream, vanilla extract, and vanilla paste. Use a wooden spoon to stir and combine the mixture. Be careful not to over-mix. Stop just when the flour is fully incorporated.

Lightly dust your counter with flour and pour the dough onto the counter. It may still feel a bit loose and crumbly at this point. Gently knead it a few times until it forms a more cohesive mass.

Shape the dough into an 8-inch circular disc. Then use a bench scraper or knife to cut it into 8 equal pieces.

Carefully transfer the scones to your lined baking sheet, then refrigerate for 15–20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F.

Bake for 18–22 minutes, until edges are just beginning to brown.
