How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.

  2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in apricots.

  3. Combine 1/2 cup milk, egg, and honey in a small bowl. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.

  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 to 5 times with floured hands. Pat dough into a 7-inch circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cut dough into 10 wedges, cutting into, but not through, dough.

  5. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack; cool 10 minutes. Combine powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons milk, stirring until smooth. Drizzle over warm scones and sprinkle with almonds.
