                         -----SCONES-----
    2       c            All-purpose flour
    1       tb           Baking powder
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/4   c            Sugar
      1/2   c            Chopped dried fruit
                         (apricots, prunes, etc)
      1/4   c            Golden raisins
    1 1/4   c            Heavy cream
                         -----GLAZE-----
    3       tb           Butter, melted
                         Sugar
 
   Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  Use an ungreased baking sheet.
   
   Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a bowl, stirring
   with a fork to mix well.  Add the dried fruit and raisins.  Still
   using a fork, stir in the cream and mix until the dough holds
   together in a rough mass (the dough will be quite sticky).
   
   Lightly flour a board and transfer the dough to it.  Knead the dough
   8 or 9 times.  Pat into a circle about 10 inches round.  For the
   glaze, spread the butter over the top and side of the circle of dough
   and sprinkle sugar on top.  Cut the circle into 12 wedges and place
   each piece on the baking sheet, allowing about an inch between pieces.
   
   Bake for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
