Sour Cherry Dark Chocolate Almond Flour Scones

Ingredients

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons frozen butter, cut into chunks
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • 1 tablespoon sour cherry preserves
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 oz dark chocolate, cut into chunks
  • 1/3 cup dried sour cherries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
  3. Add butter chunks and cut together with a pastry blender, forks, or pulse in a food processor until mixture is crumbly.
  4. In a small bowl whisk together eggs, vinegar, 1 tablespoon of cream, and vanilla.
  5. Add egg mixture, cherries, chocolate chunks, and cherry preserves to the dry ingredients and mix together until everything is moistened.
  6. Turn dough out onto wax or parchment paper and form into a long rectangle about 3/4 of an inch thick. Slice in half the long way, then slice into fourths the short way, leaving you with 8 small rectangles of dough. Slice each rectangle diagonally so that you have 16 little triangles.
  7. Place each triangle onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and brush the top of each with the remaining tablespoon of cream.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
