Fruity Scones


200g plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
80g soft brown sugar
65g butter
45g whipping cream
1/4 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp rum liqueur
35g dried apricots, chopped
20g raisins
25g almond strips


Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl. Stir in salt and sugar. Blend in butter with a pastry cutter until mixture is crumbly.

Add whipping cream, essence and rum liqueur. Add all dried fruits and almonds. Mix to a soft but not sticky dough.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead quickly until smooth but do not overmix. Roll out to a thickness of not less than 2cm. Cut into triangles with a cutter.

Place scones on a greased baking tray. Bake in preheated oven at 190°C for 20 minutes or until crisp, golden brown and well risen. Serve warm.
