Yield: Yields 8 scones.
These scones have a fine, tender crumb because of the cake flour and lack of kneading. The dusting of cinnamon sugar complements the tartness of the cherries.

Very good as is and also seems like it would work well with other dried fruit and/or other nuts. Some might prefer crunchier decorator sugar on the top, which I'll try next time.
I have so many scone recipes but I keep coming back to this one! I've made them plain and with different add-ins, it all works.
My 10 year old and I made these tonight and they were SO easy and incredibly delicious!!! We used a scone pan instead of using a cookie pan and they came out perfectly. Wonderful recipe!
Made them for Easter brunch. AWESOME! tender, tasty. will be a keeper!
