- 2 1/2 cups Baking Mix
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 3 tbsp sugar – plus more for sprinkling
- 3/4 cup cold milk
- Zest of 1 lemon
- 3/4 cup dried cherries
- Lemon Curd – optional but recommended
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Stir together baking mix, 3 tbsp sugar, lemon zest, and dried cherries in a medium bowl.
Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the butter and milk. Stir with a spoon until just barely mixed – mixing too much will make your scones tough!
Spoon or scoop heaping tablespoons of dough onto an oiled or parchment-lined baking sheet.
Sprinkle tops of scones with a bit of sugar and bake for about 12 minutes or until lightly-browned around the edges.
Serve warm, if possible, with lemon curd.
