Biscuit-like scones studded with dried cherries and bittersweet chocolate make a wonderful addition to a bread basket.

Ingredients

2
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
5
tablespoons sugar
1 1/2
teaspoons baking powder
1/4
teaspoon salt
5
tablespoons cold butter
1/4
cup dried tart cherries, chopped
1/4
cup chopped bittersweet baking chocolate
1
egg
3/4
cup milk
1/2
teaspoon almond extract
1
teaspoon sugar
2
teaspoons sliced almonds

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 450°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix flour, 5 tablespoons sugar, the baking powder and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or fork, until mixture looks like coarse meal. Stir in cherries and chocolate. In small bowl, beat egg, 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons of the milk and the almond extract with whisk; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened. (Dough will be sticky.)
  • 3 On cookie sheet, pat dough with floured hands into 8-inch round. Cut round into 12 wedges, but do not separate. Brush dough with remaining 1 tablespoon milk; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar and the almonds.
  • 4 Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully separate wedges; serve warm.
