1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 tablespoon sugar
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter
3/4 cup sour cream
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2/3 cup dried cherries
*Substitute 2/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Place all topping ingredients in bowl; mix well. Set aside.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in another bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Combine sour cream, egg and almond extract in another bowl; mix 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 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.
