Steps to make Apricots & Cream Thumbprint Scones


Preheat oven


Preheat the oven to 350 °F and line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment paper or mats.


Melt jam


In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt 1 cup of apricot jam.


Add cornstarch and water


Add 1 teaspoon of cornstarch and 1 tablespoon of cool water. Whisk to combine and cook, continuously stirring, until bubbling and thickened.



Remove the saucepan from the heat and transfer to the refrigerator to cool slightly.


Combine dry ingredients


In a large bowl, combine 3½ cups of all-purpose flour, ½ cup of granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of baking powder and ¾ teaspoon of salt.


Add wet ingredients


Add 2½ cups of heavy cream, ¾ cup dried apricots, diced into ¼-inch chunks and ½ cup white chocolate, chopped into chunks. Mix until combined into a thick and stiff dough.


Prepare scones


Use an ice cream scoop to portion the dough into scones and place on the lined baking sheets, about 2-inch spaces between.


Fill scones


Using your thumb, gently press a hole into the center of each scone and fill with a teaspoon of the thickened and cooled apricot jam. Continue with remaining scones and jam.


Brush scones


Lightly brush the dough of the scones with some half and half cream. Take care not to brush the jam centers.


Add sugar


Sprinkle some sugar over the scones.




Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes until lightly golden brown.



Cool for a few minutes before serving your Apricot and Cream Thumbprint Scones.
