Honey Cinnamon Cherry Scones
  1. 1/2 cup Sue BeeĀ® Honey
  2. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  3. 1/4 cup sugar
  4. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  5. 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  6. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  7. 1 stick butter
  8. 3/4 cup buttermilk
  9. 1/3 cup cinnamon chips
  10. 1/3 cup dried cherries
  11. 1 tablespoon sparkling sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a food processor.
  3. Cut the butter into cubes and add to the dry ingredients. Pulse until the butter is pea size. Do not over mix at this stage (the dough will lump up).
  4. Slowly add the buttermilk and Sue Bee Honey and pulse only to combine. Then add in the cinnamon chips and cherries and pulse 2-3 times.
  5. Knead the dough on a floured surface to pull it together and pat into an 8-inch lined baking dish.
  6. Flip out of the dish and divide into 8 equal pieces. Sprinkle with sparkling sugar.
  7. Cut pieces in half, forming triangles.
  8. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake 10-12 minutes until golden and done.
