  • 2 Cups all purpose unbleached flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 4 Tablespoon unsalted butter frozen
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 Cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 Cup whole milk
  • 1 egg

Instructions

Scones

  • Position your oven rack in the middle and preheat the oven to 425 Farhenheit.
  • In a bowl, sift the flour and add baking powder and salt. Mix it until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the heavy whipping cream, milk, maple syrup, vanilla and the whisked egg. Stir to combine.
  • Grate the frozen butter over the flour mixture. Cut the butter into the flour with a pastry knife.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and the dried cherries.
  • Gently stir the liquid into to the flour mixture until it is just combined. Be careful not to overmix it.
  • Transfer the dough to a floured counter top. Gently form the dough into a circle approximately 7" round and 1 - 1 1/2” thick. Cut out 8 triangles.
  • Place the triangles onto a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Bake them in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Drizzle

  • Combine the powdered sugar and blood orange juice until you no longer have any lumps. If you prefer a thin glaze, slowly add more juice to the mixture.
  • Drizzle on the blood orange icing while the scones are still warm. Enjoy!
