Cherry scones are a true summer treat. As breakfast or a tea time indulgence, you'll love them!
One of my favorite things to bake up any time of year is scones. They come together quickly, bake up in a flash, and can be customized in countless ways. I've made them with every kind of fruit imaginable, chopped chocolate, herbs, and even bacon jam. I never get tired of them, and luckily, neither does my family!
For this summery batch I was inspired by the sweet cherries that are available right now. The burst of fruit flavor in each bite is paired up with crunchy walnuts, and combined with the tender texture of the scones, makes for a breakfast that is hard to beat.
These scones use grated butter. If you've never tried using grated frozen butter before, now's the time. While this method is more time-consuming than simply adding butter with a few pulses of the food processor, the result yields perfectly tender scones.
