Apricot Chip Triangles Recipe

Apricot Chip Triangles Recipe

After a trip to England, I was determined to learn how to make scones. This recipe is a combination of several from my search. I often get together with my fellow travelers to enjoy a traditional English tea, and these scones are the highlight of that event.
