Apricot-Ginger Scones

It's easy to vary the flavor of these scones. Omit the dried apricots and crystallized ginger and add 3/4 cup dried cherries or cranberries and 1 Tbs. grated lemon or orange zest.

Excellent basic scone recipe
October 11, 2015
I've made this many times over the last few years, and never once made the original version. But, whatever scone takes my fancy I have adapted from this recipe, They go down well with my family and guests. Favorites are apricot chocolate chip and white chocolate raspberry. Other times it's just whatever we have to hand. I have used all or half wholewheat flour, and replaced up to a 1/4 with almond flour (more and it's too oily).
Since I bought a pastry knife I can make the dough in no time at all. It's so quick and easy, sometimes I make scones just because the oven is already on for something else. Doubling quantities, I find it works best to make one batch at a time, or it gets a bit unwieldy.
Pros: Easy, Quick

Best scones
March 17, 2013
Have made these several times and just love them. First time I made them I doubled the butter, error, however, they were still amazing.
I love ginger so cut back on the apricots to focus more on the ginger flavour. I also reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup. These changes don't impact in any way the fabulous flavour of these.
Pros: Quick, Easy, Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again
Cons: too much apricot
