    teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3
    cup sugar
  • 1/2

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture forms coarse crumbs. In medium bowl, beat 1 of the eggs with fork. Stir in whipping cream and vanilla. Stir in chocolate chunks and cherries until combined. Pour over crumb mixture; stir just until moistened (do not overmix).
  • 3
    Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 4 times; pat into 7-inch circle, about 1 inch thick. Transfer to cookie sheet. In small bowl, beat remaining egg; stir in water. Brush egg mixture lightly over top of dough; discard any remaining egg mixture. Cut into 8 wedges; separate slightly so wedges aren’t touching.
  • 4
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool 10 minutes. Serve warm.

  • These scones are delicious served with butter or whipped cream cheese.
  • Recipe Variation Chocolate Chunk 'n Cranberry Scones: Substitute semisweet chocolate chunks for the dark chocolate and dried cranberries for the cherries.
