Cherry Vanilla Scones

Tags:bing cherry, bing cherries, scone, cherry, brunch

Serving Size:Makes 16 scones


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 3 1/2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, divided
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups pitted, quartered Bing cherries
  • 2 Tablespoons water



If you've never tried homemade scones fresh from the oven, try these!


In a large bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. Cut the butter into the dry mixture with a pastry cutter or incorporate with your fingers until the butter pieces are pea-size. 

In another large bowl, whisk together 1 egg, the egg yolk, vanilla, heavy cream and buttermilk. Use a large spatula to fold the wet ingredients into the dry just until a dough begins to form. Mix in the cherries and form the dough into two 5-inch rounds, wrapping each tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining egg with the 2 tablespoons of water. Preheat the oven to 400°. Cut each round into 8 equal, triangle-shaped pieces. Place the scones on a lightly oiled baking sheet, brush each one with the egg wash and bake for about 15 minutes until browned and cooked through. Transfer the scones to a cooling rack and serve warm or at room temperature.
