1cupof chopped Christmas red and green cherries - WHOLE
Kick the tires & light the fires to 350 degrees.
Take your bowl with your cup of sour cream, and mix in the baking soda.
Whisk together the flour, sugar,baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or two knives in a criss-cross fashion, until the butter is broken into pea sized morsels in the flour. OR, if you have a mixer, use the paddle attachment and run it for a few minutes until the butter is broken up.
Beat the egg and mix in into the sour cream.
Add the sour cream mixture into the dry mixture. Either mix by hand but I've now found that using a mixer makes amazing scones!
When the dough is combined, add in the WHOLE cherries. The mixer will break them up! If you are hand mixing, then chop them in half. OR keep them whole. I like a good bite of cherry in my scones.
Divide into three equal circles. Cut each circle into six equal triangles.
Bake on a well greased or parchment lined baking sheet for 15-20 minutes, until the scones are browned nicely on the bottom and slightly on the top. Watch them carefully!
