Ingredients:  
4 c. flour
2 T. sugar, plus extra for sprinkles
2 T. baking powder
2 tsp. salt
3/4 lb. cold unsalted butter, diced
4 eggs, beaten
1 c. cold heavy cream
3/4 c. dried fruit, diced
1 egg beaten with 2 T. milk for egg wash

Directions:
Directions:
In a large bowl of an electric mixer, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; blend in the cold butter at the lowest speed and mix until the butter is in "pea-sized" pieces. Combine the eggs and heavy cream and quickly add them to the flour mixture until just blended. Add the fruit. The dough should be a bit sticky.

Dump the dough onto a well-floured surface; flour your hands and a rolling pin and roll the dough 3/4-inch thick (or you can "pat" the dough with your hands); you should see lumps of butter in the dough. Cut into squares and then cut diagonally to make triangles. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper; brush the tops with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400 F. for 20-22 minutes. Cool on a baking rack.

Note: if you want to make a smaller scone, reduce the cooking time to 10-12 minutes. Recipe would make approx. 30.

Personal Notes:
Ed and Annie Kavanagh introduced us to the best scones in the world. Rather than using dried fruit such as raisins or dried cranberries, you can also substitute 3/4 c. of a good fruit jam.
