  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup cold heavy whipping cream
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 2 teaspoons sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in cold butter until the size of peas. Stir in apricots and rosemary.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and whipping cream until blended. Stir into flour-butter mixture just until moistened.
  3. Turn onto a well-floured surface. Roll dough into a 10-in. square. Cut into 4 squares; cut each square into 4 triangles. Place on baking sheets lined with parchment.
  4. For topping, combine egg and milk. Brush tops of scones with egg mixture; sprinkle with sugar. Bake until golden brown, 12-15 minutes.
