You don't have to be a cookie monster to enjoy these scrumptious scones. When you are looking for a sweet treat to accompany a cup of hot tea or coffee, indulge in these delectable buttermilk apricot scones.
2 cups all-purpose flour
Combine first 5 ingredients; cut in margarine with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add apricots; toss well. Combine egg, buttermilk, and nectar; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. (Dough will be sticky.)
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; with floured hands, knead 4 or 5 times. Pat dough into a 9 in. circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cut dough into 12 wedges, cutting to but not through bottom of dough. Brush with egg white, and sprinkle with 1 tbsp. sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden. Serve hot.
