Dry Fruit Scones are far from plain, they are lightly sweetened, thick but soft and delicious. Made with plain flour, butter, milk with baking powder as a leavening agent, it is pretty quick to prepare.
Had dry fruit mix in my pantry so I incorporated them in this recipe. These tender, buttery scones are nicely moist. It is almost the same method as preparing the pie crust. You can add pretty much anything to this basic recipe. Savory, sweet, fruity or rich, you name it, it would probably work in scones.
The key to a perfect scone is to make sure you don't overwork the dough, otherwise the result will be a hard doughy scone. They're good enough to eat on their own!
