In line with my resolutions, I did in fact make scones for the premiere of Downton Abbey. I also had tea to go with it but that's beside the point. I had put this recipe on my 'to bake' list after reading it in a magazine. I realize you can pretty much substitute any kind of dried berry for this but cherries sounded pretty good and overall these sounded pretty healthy.

|Delicious pile of scones|
They tasted especially good with whipped cream. Literally, I whipped the cream (tada, finally got an electric mixer) and provided the scones with a generous dollop. Perfect for pretending I'm sophisticated and British and delicious enough to distract me from my lack of 1920's wardrobe and jewelry.
Short and sweet, like making the scones....
