As you know I just love scones.
They really are so delicious, I could eat them morning, noon and night.
And I do sometimes, there is no set time to have a scone.
These combine the delicious tartness of cherries along with coconut and chocolate and really nothing could be better if you ask me.
Bob’s Red Mill asked me to create a recipe using some of their products and I couldn’t wait to try their shredded unsweetened coconut it was great and very different than the coconut I typically find in stores. I know I will enjoy baking with it again. The other item I selected to try was their Dried Tart Cherries, they are so big and delicious I’m not going to even begin to tell you how many of those I popped into my mouth while baking!
Chocolate, cherries and coconut what a delicious combination!
Roll the dough out on a well floured surface. Scone dough is very sticky, but so worth getting your hands messy with!
Baking scones for a short period of time at a higher temperature gives you beautiful scones.
The addition of buttermilk in these scones compliments the chocolate, cherries and coconut nicely.
Drizzle the scones with a *Cherry Glaze Icing and serve.
