This just happens to be my favorite scone....I rarely make them because they are deadly to my diet...but just every now and then, I can't help myself...

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup chopped dried cherries
1 tablespon grated lemon rind
1 1/4 cups whipping cream
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir in cherries and 1 tablespoon lemon rind. Add whipping cream, stirring with a fork just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 5 or 6 times, just until dough holds together. Pat dough into an 8-inch circle on an ungreased baking sheet. Cut dough into 8 wedges; seperate wedges slightly. Brush with melted butter. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspon lemon rind; sprinkle over dough.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden. Remove from pan. Serve warm.
