Dried Cherry Scones

It's no secret that I love scones, so here is another wonderful scone recipe! And... I will use any excuse I can to have chocolate for breakfast! Enjoy!

Dried Cherry Scones
Recipe from Baking Delights

3 1/2 c flour
2 tbs baking powder
1/2 c cold unsalted butter (freeze it for 5 minutes or so)
1/2 c sugar
1 1/3 c half and half
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp almond
2 cups dried cherries
1 cup dark chocolate, melted with 1 tablespoon butter

Mix the dry ingredients, except cherries, together.

Grate butter into the dry ingredients. Add cherries and stir to mix in evenly. Add vanilla, almond and1/2 and 1/2 and mix until you have a soft dough that holds together.
Roll out gently to about 3/4 inch thickness and cut out with a biscuit cutter. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and allow to stand for 20 minutes. During this time preheat oven to 400F.

Bake for 12 minutes or until done.

Melt chocolate and butter together in the microwave.

Drizzle over warm scones with a fork.
