Apricot Cream Scones

Here’s a favorite scone recipe that I’m pulling forward from the first year of my blog.  This one features dried apricots in place of the more traditional currants.  The slightly tart bursts of apricot are a wonderful addition to the rich, tender cream scone.  I hope you enjoy this blast from the past, which was originally published on December 13, 2006.
