Ah, they only look like muffins! In real life they are scones…well sort of. At least that’s how it started.

I had used a box mix last year for apricot scones and although I have to tell you they were very good, I just didn’t think the box was worth $8 when I have all the ingredients in my pantry, including apricots and can put them together for less than a quarter of the price. So, anyway….

Cold butter, cut up small and flour equals a short dough that is very versatile for scones etc.

Add milk and melted butter and apricots and at the very end, I thought, why not try to cream this out a little, so I added about a tablespoon of mascarpone cheese, the cream cheese of Italy.  The dough was a little wetter than anticipated so instead of being able to roll it and then use a biscuit cutter, I would up using a muffin tin to bake. End result, scones disguised as muffins. Or muffins disguised as scones…You’ll have to decide!
