Fresh Fruit Scones Recipe

It was a rainy Monday morning last week, and Max got me up early so I decided to bake something for breakfast. These fresh fruit scones are truly delicious, not like the dry, tasteless scones most people are used to. The abundance of fresh fruit in the dough makes these moist!

I used the apricots from my CSA (shown in the photos) for my fruit. You could use peaches or nectarines if you prefer – basically, a pit-fruit.

Since the apricot season isn’t especially long, I doubled the recipe and made a second batch. BUT instead of baking both batches, I froze 8 scones, uncooked, for a later date.

This is what I did to freeze the fresh fruit scones:

• I rolled out the dough and formed a circle, just as if I were going to bake immediately.
• I then cut the sphere with a floured knife, again as if I were to bake immediately.
• And placed them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Just as if I were to bake immediately. But now the difference was instead of the oven for these beauties, it was the freezer! While my other 8 scones were baking, I was quick-freezing these so they wouldn’t be too soft to stack in a container. (15 minutes should do it.)
•At this point, I parchment lined a freezer container and placed my scones inside.
• I then labeled my scones: name of the product, date frozen, the temperature to be cooked at, and time needed to bake. I will defrost before I bake.

  1. They look great. I love scones!

    The fruit scone recipe sounds great: I have the wood stove fired up to take the fall morning chill out, I have a bag of plums I picked yesterday, I have all the other ingredients but… (I sometimes miss stuff) but after too much time wasted I still can’t figure out how to print the recipe. If I can’t make a work copy for the kitchen it won’t happen.
