Ingredients:Aloha Scones

  • 1 box of biscuit mix (I used Jiffy Buttermilk – less than $1 at most stores!)
  • 1/2 cup of milk (I used 2%, but you can cut the fat by using skim)
  • 1 teaspoon of a kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup of toasted coconut
  • 1/2 cup of dried apricots, reconstituted and chopped
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 teaspoon of water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375.  Spread your coconut out on a baking sheet.  Toast in the oven for 5-7 minutes – until the edges start to brown.  While you’re waiting on your coconut, reconstitute your apricots by heating up about 1 cup of water and pop the apricots in the warm water.  Once your coconut is done, your apricots will be soft and pliable – chop.  Combine biscuit mix with white chocolate chips, coconut, salt and apricots.  Dust your spoon and hands with flour before handling the dough so it won’t stick.  Section the mixture into 6 mounds and place on a greased cookie sheet.  Brush the mounds with egg wash and sprinkle with a little sugar.  Allow to bake for 10 to 12 minutes.  Aloha!
