So many scones--so little time! I want to try them all! This recipe is very similar, in fact almost identical, to Strawberry Shortcake Scones, previously posted. The addition of rosemary here should be interesting.

2 Tbsp

1/4 tsp

6 Tbsp
butter
1
egg, lightly beaten
1 box
(8 oz.) creme fraiche
1/4 c
whipping cream
1 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place grapes on an ungreased baking sheet. Roast 20 to 25 minutes in a preheated 400ยบ oven or until browned and starting to burst; set aside.
2
In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in center of flour mixture; set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine egg, creme fraiche, and whipping cream. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Sprinkle with roasted grapes and rosemary. Using a fork, stir just until moistened.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing it for 10 to 12 strokes or until dough is nearly smooth. Pat dough into a 10x4" rectangle. Cut in half lengthwise and in sixths crosswise to make 12 rectangles.
