Cherry Eggnog Scones with Almond Glaze

3 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp kosher salt
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup cold butter or margarine
2/3 cup dried cherries or cherry craisins
2 eggs, beaten
5-6 oz Eggnog
Raw sugar (Turbinado sugar)

Almond Glaze
1 cup powdered (confectioners) sugar
2 Tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2-1 tsp almond extract

Preheat oven to 425 F.  Mix flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.  
With a pastry blender cut in butter until a coarse meal.  

Stir in cherries.  

Add eggs and eggnog.  And mix as much as you can with a wooden spoon.  

Turn out dough onto a pastry mat and knead until the all the flour is incorporated.  

Divide the dough in half.  

Form each half into a 6" round. 

Sprinkle each round with a little of the raw sugar and lightly press into the dough. Cut into 8 wedges.  

Place on a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes until starting to turn golden brown on top.  

Remove from the oven to a cooling rack.


Mix together the powdered sugar, milk, and extracts to make the glaze.  Once the scones have cooled drizzle over the top.
