Enjoy these delicious scones made with cherries and pistachios - a perfect addition to your bread basket.

Ingredients

2
cups all-purpose flour
2
tablespoons granulated sugar
3
teaspoons baking powder
3/4
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
cup butter
3/4
cup chopped drained maraschino cherries
1/2
cup chopped shelled pistachios
1/2
cup milk
1
egg, separated
4
teaspoons coarse sugar

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper or lightly grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray. In large bowl, stir together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and cinnamon. With pastry blender or fork, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in cherries and pistachios.
  • 2 In small bowl, beat milk and egg yolk with fork until well blended. Add to flour mixture; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  • 3 On lightly floured surface, gently knead dough several times. Divide dough in half; place on cookie sheet. Pat each half into 6-inch round. Cut each round into 6 wedges; do not separate.
  • 4 In small bowl, beat egg white with fork. Brush over tops of scones. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  • 5 Bake 17 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet; cool 10 minutes. Cut into wedges. Serve warm.
Tips  

For a Christmas brunch, accent the red and green of the cherries and pistachios by sprinkling red and green decorator's sugar on top before baking.

As an alternative to cutting a circle of scone dough into wedges, pat the dough into a rectangle and cut the dough into diamond shapes.

Pistachio's natural color ranges from creamy to true green, with darker green being an indication of higher quality. Pistachios that are red have had their shells dyed.
