    Star Cherry Scones

    1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
    2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    2 1/2 tablespoons sugar, plus more for sprinkling
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, chilled
    1/2 cup dried cherries
    1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
    1 large egg
    5 tablespoons heavy cream, plus more for brushing on scones

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat; set aside.


    In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Add butter and pulse 3 to 6 times until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Transfer mixture to a large bowl; stir in cherries and lemon zest.

    In a small bowl, beat together egg and cream. Add to flour mixture; stir gently with a fork until mixture just comes together. If dough seems too dry, add a splash of cream; mixture should not be too sticky. Transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface. Shape dough into a 6-inch circle, about 1 inch thick. Using a sharp knife, cut dough into 8 equal wedges. Place scones on prepared baking sheet; lightly brush tops with heavy cream and sprinkle with sugar. Bake until golden brown, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool slightly on baking sheet before transferring to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. Scones are best eaten the day they are made.
