1Heat oven to 425°F. In large bowl, mix flour, 1/4 cup sugar, the baking powder and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in apricots and baking chips. Stir in egg and just enough half-and-half so dough leaves side of bowl and forms a ball.
2Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 10 times. Pat or roll into 8-inch round on ungreased 12-inch pizza pan or cookie sheet. Cut into 8 wedges; do not separate. Sprinkle with additional sugar.
3Bake 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully separate wedges; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Serve warm if desired.
