1 3/4

1
egg
1/2
cup half-and-half
1
cup chopped peeled pear (1 medium)
1/3
cup chopped pecans

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. In large bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or fork, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in egg and half-and-half until soft dough forms. Stir in pear and pecans.

Expert Tips

If you prefer apple scones, just use chopped peeled apple in place of the pear and use any type of nuts you wish.

Drizzle warm scones with caramel topping. They'll be "pear-fectly" scrumptious!
