Recently I've been having more excuses to bake, which is good so I don't eat it all myself! I've been having monthly get togethers with some of my friends who are pregnant or have babies. We usually meet in the mornings so it's the perfect time for some fresh baked breakfast goodies.
For our last meeting I made this chocolate chip apricot scones, mmmm... Here is the recipe adapted from Eat, Live, Run.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
6 T cold butter, cut into chunks
3/4 cup whole milk
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in the butter with your fingers and work mixture together until it resembles coarse sand. Add the chopped apricots and chocolate chips.
Add the cream and mix with your hands until a dough forms. Make an eight inch circle with the dough and slice into 12 small wedges. Place wedges on a lined baking sheet and bake for 16-18 minutes, until golden brown.
