  • 2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • cups King Arthur Flour White Whole Wheat Flour
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 10 ounces dried figs diced small
  • 2 cups heavy cream cold
  • ¼ cup honey


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in the diced figs.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the heavy cream and honey.
  4. Using a wooden spoon, stir the heavy cream mixture into the flour mixture, stirring just until ingredients are moistened.
  5. Turn the mixture out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until a soft dough forms (about 2 minutes), sprinkling more flour in if needed. Divide the dough into two equal balls. Working with one at a time, pat each one into an 8-inch circle and cut into 8 triangles. Transfer the triangles to the prepared baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature. These scones are best served the day that they are made, but can be kept in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. You can also wrap them individually in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag to store in the freezer for up to 2 months.
