Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine apricots and water in small bowl; let stand 15 minutes.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Cut in Fleischmann’s with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in nuts.
  3. Add cream, egg and apricots with water to dry mixture; stir just until moistened. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead 10 times or until nearly smooth. Place onto ungreased baking sheet. Pat or roll to a 9-inch circle, 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 8 wedges, but do not separate. Brush with additional milk; sprinkle with sugar.
  4. Bake 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Immediately remove from baking sheet; carefully separate into wedges.
