Cherry Cobbler Scones

My dear neighbor, Maggie, delivered some of these scones to us shortly after sweet girl was born.  I haven't forgotten them, they were that good.  So I swiped her recipe from her blog and made some for us.  They're yum.  A serious yum.

Cherry Cobbler Scones

(She adapted from Joy the Baker's Peach Cobbler Scones, I adapted a bit from there).

Makes 8 BIG scones

3 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup COLD unsalted butter cut into cubes
3/4 cup cold whole milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups pitted and quartered cherries
1/4 cup milk (for brushing dough).
2 tbls sugar and 3/4 tsp cinnamon mixed

1) Place flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt in food processor.  Pulse.  Add butter, pulse until coarse crumbles form.
2) In large measuring cup, measure milk, add egg and vanilla.  Whisk.
3) Add wet ingredients to food processor, until they have just combined.
4) Turn out to flowered surface. Knead 15x.
5) With rolling pin, roll into a large rectangle, dough about 1/2 inch thick.
6) Add cherries to one half of the rectangle.  Brush the other side of the rectangle with milk. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the cherries.
7) Fold the dough over the cherries.  Cut into 8 portions.
8) Brush with  more milk and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake @ 400 for 15-18 minutes.

It really was a perfect activity for little hands-running the food processor, kneading, using the rolling pin, sprinkling cherries and cinnamon sugar, painting the dough with milk.
