I really like this base a lot. This is a very, very, dense and chunkier scone. This tastes more like an energy bar rather than a scone. This is one of those batters that you can add whatever your tastes desires. This specific fruit combo is a little more sophisticated. Not a true kid friendly scone. I am going to try again and add more kid friendly ingredients, i.e., chocolate chips, pretzels, marshmallows, cashews, etc.
For this particular batch, I added dried cherries, blanched almonds (I wanted to use salted, but didn't have), raisins, flax seeds, oats and dried figs. I really like these. They are best eaten the day they are baked (like most scones), but are great the next day crumbled up and sprinkled over yogurt!
chopping the nuts
shaping the dough
cut scones, ready to be frozen
These are yummy!
