Number of Servings: 16


    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/3 cup sugar
    2 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/4 cup unsalted butter, chilled
    1/2 cup half and half cream
    1 large egg
    1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
    1/2 cup white chocolate morsels
    1 cup finely diced dried apricots
    1 cup chopped walnuts


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut butter into 1/2 inch cubes and distribute them over flour mixture. Cut in with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
In a small bowl, stir together egg, half and half, and vanilla.
Add the cream mixture to the flour mixture. Stir with a fork and then knead until well combined (dough will be a bit sticky). Knead in the white chocolate, apricots and walnuts.
With lightly floured hands, pat the dough out into a 9-inch circle in the center of an ungreased baking sheet. With a serrated knife, cut circle into 8 wedges.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the top is lightly browned and the center is done.
Cool for 5 minutes. Using a spatula, transfer the scones to a wire rack to cool. Recut into wedges.
Store in an air-tight container.

Note: Original recipe calls for 8 servings, which is 446 calories each. So after they are cooled, I cut each wedge in half and make 16 servings out of the recipe. It's still a nice satisfying sweet treat at only 223 calories, which is more reasonable.
