How To Make triple fruit scones

    Add butter, apricots and craisins; mix until butter is pea-sized. Use fingers to work butter into dry mixture.

  • 4
    Form dough into a 12 x 6 inch rectangle. Cut into 12 triangular pieces. At this point you may sprinkle coarse sugar granules on top.
  • 5
    Bake on cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 13-16 minutes or until lightly browned. You may use a powdered sugar glaze drizzled over the warm tops.
