I was trying to remember what they call this kind of glass, and Betsy came to the rescue. It's depression green glass. My sister has been collecting it for years and has a hutch full.
She had two cake plates and gifted one to me. I was anxious to use it. This morning I made scones and they looks so pretty served on the plate.
Do you have any depression glass? What color? I've seen green and rose, and one piece of lavender.
APRICOT, WHITE CHOCOLATE, WALNUT SCONES
2 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/3 cup granulated sugar 1 cup white chocolate chips
2 teaspoons baking powder 1 cup coarsely broken walnuts
1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup chopped dried apricots *
1/4 cup chilled butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 large egg
Preheat oven to 375 f.
In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into 1/2 inch cubes and distribute them over the flour mixture. With a pastry blender cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
In a small bowl stir together the cream, egg and vanilla.
Add chocolate chips, apricots and walnuts to flour mixture and coat all. Make a well and add the cream mixture. Stir and knead into dough.
On a lightly floured board pat the dough into a circle. I divide the dough and make two smaller circles. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet and score into 8 wedges. (you will have 16 smaller scones by dividing the dough.)
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned.
Remove from baking sheet and cool on wire rack. Recut the wedges if necessary. My drizzle is
optional...but it just gives them a finishing touch for looks and taste.
*You can substitute dried cranberries for apricots if desired.
Brew a pot of coffee and enjoy!
