Apricot Scones image

Popular served with tea in Victorian days, scones are making a big comeback. Apricots and nuts are stirred into the batter in this recipe I baked for the theme shower. Spread with Devonshire cream, they delighted the bride-to-be and guests. -Robin Fuhrman, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin

Zaarbucks Famous Apricot Almond Scones image

In July 2005, five women set out to Florence Italy to found Zaarbucks, a chain of kiosks serving coffees, teas, jaffles, fudge and baked goods. Early on, the group's business manger, PanNan, figured out that customers hooked on their fabulous baked goods would soon gain so much weight they would stop buying their daily muffins and scones. Quickly Bergy and Derf began working on a new recipe for a deletable new scone that would be kind to the figure. Having developed a basic recipe for light scones, they worked with Madeleine M. to develop a range of flavor combinations that would rival none. Apricot-Almond was by far my favorite so today, one time only, I'm sharing the recipe with you. Don't tell 'em where you got the recipe.

Time 37m

Yield 8-12 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 16

1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 cup fat free sour cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 -4 tablespoons chilled reduced fat margarine or 3 -4 tablespoons low-fat butter
1/3 cup dried apricot, small diced
1/4 cup sliced almonds
2 teaspoons nonfat milk
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Prepare baking sheet by spraying lightly with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the the flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Cut in the margarine until the mixture resembles course meal.
  • Add the apricots and almonds into the flour mixture and mix thoroughly.
  • In a smaller bowl, mix together the yogurt, sour cream, and extracts.
  • Cut and fold the yogurt/sour cream mixture into the flour until you can collect the dough. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface just until it can be shaped. If the dough is too sticky add a little more flour but take care not to add too much as it toughens up the scones. Similarly, over kneading the dough also diminishes the final result.
  • Place the dough ball on the baking sheet and spread out into an 8 or 10 inch disk.
  • Lightly brush the milk on the top and sprinkle with the remaining 2 teaspoons of sugar.
  • Using a very long knife (bread knives work well) cut half way through the dough. You are making indentations, not actually portioning the scone. Repeat until the scone has been divided into 8 wedges. (You can also cut into 12 pieces if you want smaller pieces).
  • Bake the scones 20 - 22 minutes.
  • Best served warm but cold is good too.
  • Enjoy!

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup chopped dried California Apricots

Yield Makes 8 scones

Number Of Ingredients 17

For apricot swirl
1/2 cup dried apricots (2 3/4 ounces)
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon Disaronno Amaretto
2 tablespoons sliced almonds with skins (1/2 ounce)
For scones
2 3/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour plus additional for dusting
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 sticks (10 tablespoons) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
3 1/2 ounces pure almond paste (1/3 cup)
4 tablespoons sliced almonds with skins (1 ounce)
1 cup well-shaken buttermilk
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract


  • Make apricot swirl:
  • Simmer apricots and water in a small heavy saucepan, covered, stirring occasionally, until water is absorbed, about 3 minutes, then transfer to a food processor. Add brown sugar and Amaretto and pulse to a coarse purée. Add almonds and pulse once or twice to coarsely chop nuts.
  • Transfer purée to a bowl and cool to room temperature.
  • Make scones:
  • Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper.
  • Put flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and butter in cleaned food processor, then crumble almond paste and add to processor. Pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal with some small (roughly pea-size) butter lumps. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in 2 tablespoons almonds.
  • Whisk together buttermilk, eggs, and almond extract in a 2-cup glass measure, then reserve 2 tablespoons buttermilk mixture for brushing on scones. Make a well in center of flour mixture and pour in remaining buttermilk mixture, stirring with a wooden spoon until just combined. Add apricot purée and stir once or twice to distribute without incorporating fully. (Dough will be wet.)
  • Transfer dough with floured hands to a well-floured surface, then turn dough to coat with flour and pat into a round about 6 inches in diameter and 2 inches thick. Carefully transfer dough to lined baking sheet and cut into 8 equal wedges with a floured knife, leaving wedges together. (If dough is too soft to cut, chill until firm, about 30 minutes, before cutting.)
  • Brush top and sides with reserved buttermilk mixture and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons almonds. Bake until golden and a wooden pick or skewer inserted in center of a scone comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Cool on a rack 15 minutes and cut wedges to separate. Serve warm or at room temperature.


Apricot Walnut Scones image

These are my favorite scones. The cake flour and the little bit of extra sugar helps keep them light and tender. If you don't have the cake flour, just use 2 cups of regular flour. Handling the dough gently and only as much as necessary helps preserve the texture.

Time 45m

Yield 12-14 scones, 12-14 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup pastry flour (cake flour)
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, chilled and cut into small pieces
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 egg
1/2 cup dried apricot, finely chopped
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1 egg, beaten with 1 tbs water


  • Combine both flours, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
  • Cut butter into flour mixture till it resembles large crumbs.
  • Coat apricot pieces with 1 or 2 tbs flour to keep from sticking together. Add apricots and walnuts to flour mixture.
  • In a separate container, beat 1 egg and mix with cream. Drizzle into flour mixture and mix gently. Turn out mixture onto lightly floured cutting board.
  • Gently knead dough just till it sticks together. Be sure to turn the dough on the board so it doesn't stick. Add a little more flour to the board if required. Pat or roll out dough to an approximate thickness of 3/4 inches thick. Cut out scones with a 2" floured cutter.
  • Place scones on a baking sheet. Lining sheet with parchment paper or silicone liner helps keeps bottoms from getting too dark.
  • If desired, brush tops of scones with mixture of 1 egg beaten with 1 tbs water.
  • Bake at 425 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Cool on wire rack.
