"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tables spoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold, cut in cubes

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sift dry ingredients: flour, backing powder, salt, sugar. Using pastry blender or forks, cut the butter into the dry ingredients to resemble coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of your mixture and pour in the cup of heavy whipping cream. Fold in the apricots and mix just to incorporate.

Cut into desired shape. I make mine look like small biscuits. Place on cookie sheet. Brush on some heavy cream on top and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until light golden brown. Makes 8-16 depending on the size.

I had never had a scone before I tried these. I didn't even know I liked apricots. I had gone to Glenlaurel Inn for a friends wedding and they shared this recipe with us.
