Serve these cherry scones warm from the oven and your guests are sure to enjoy them!
Heat oven to 375°F. Combine all topping ingredients in small bowl; mix well. Set aside.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Combine sour cream, egg and almond extract in small bowl until smooth. Stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Stir in cherries.
Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times until smooth, adding small amount of flour, if necessary.
Divide dough in half. Pat each half into a 7-inch circle. Place 2 inches apart onto large ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle topping evenly over dough. Score each half into 8 wedges; do not separate. Bake 25-30 minutes or until scones are lightly browned. Cool 15 minutes; separate scones. Store leftover scones in airtight container at room temperature.
*Substitute 2/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries.

it was easy and delicious
This was my first "go" at homemade scones and they were great! Super easy and delicious.
Very satisfying recipe. My first try at scones. I will add more cherries, next time. Tried to other scone recipes after this one - one with buttermilk, one with cream. This recipe put them to shame! Easy to make and the presentation is gorgeous.
I have made this several times and it is always a big hit. I use more cherries than called for, mostly just to use the entire bag.
I made these with fresh cherries-YUM! They would probably be good with other fresh summer berries or fruit!
It freezes very well and the basic dough without the cherries and almond extract is great if you use butterscotch,chocolate chips, or even make a chedder, chive and sausage scone for breakfast, or lemon poppy seed. may family loves all of these
The almond extract gives a great taste, it's a nice treat with out too much sugar. It was requested as a next day school lunch snack. Gotta love it!
This is easy and delicious! It has become our favorite weekend breakfast treat.
Very good recipe, easy to make! My husband who prefers all things chocolate even liked them. The recipe also works well with cherry flavored cranberrys.
I used dried cranberries instead of the cherries and they were Delicious!
I love these scones. The recipe was easy and the results were delicious. They freeze well too.
Cherries and almonds are a wonderful combination!
