Expert Tips

Try these scones warm with a thin spread of cream cheese or jam. Add a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice, and your morning is off to a sensational start!

Change the flavor! Make raisin scones by using 1/2 cup raisins instead of the apricots. How about tempting almond scones? Use 1/2 cup coarsely chopped almonds instead of the apricots and stir in 1/4 teaspoon almond extract with the whipping cream.
