How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all butter ingredients in bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Set aside.

    Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in bowl; cut in 1/2 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine cherries, half & half, coconut, egg and lemon zest in another bowl. Add to flour mixture. Stir just until flour mixture is moistened.

    Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead lightly 8 to 10 times. Pat dough into 7-inch circle. Place onto greased baking sheet. Cut into 8 wedges. (Do not separate.) Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes. Cut wedges apart; remove from baking sheet. Serve warm scones with citrus butter.

Tip #1

Scotland takes the credit for developing scones, although the British have made them popular all over the world. This biscuit-like quick bread derived its name from the Stone of Destiny (or Scone) where Scottish kings were once crowned.
