APRICOT AND GINGER CREAM SCONES
from "Cold-Weather Cooking" by Sarah Leah Chase

The good news is that these scones contain no butter. The bad news is that they contain a lot of heavy cream instead. However, these scones are definitely worth the forbidden fat and cholesterol. Besides, an extra fifteen minutes at the gym just may assuage the guilt

Makes 12 scones

PREPARATION

1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
2. Prepare the dough: In a mixing bowl stir together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix in the apricots and ginger. Using a wooden spoon, gradually stir in the cream to form a sticky dough.
3. Turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface and shape into a circle about 10 inches in diameter. Sprinkle with a little more flour if the dough seems too sticky. Cut the circle into 12 pie-shaped wedges and arrange about 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet.
4. For the glaze, Brush a thin coating of cream over each scone and sprinkle with the granulated sugar. Bake until puffed and golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
