Prep Time: Fifteen Minutes
Total Time: Under an hour

3 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup dried apricots, small dice
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1/2 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together and cut in the butter until it resembles coarse cornmeal. Add in the apricots, pecans and zest. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the cream and milk. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry, and combine until evenly wet and just starting to hold together. Do not over mix.
Divide dough into 12 buns and place them on a lightly greased pan, pressing them down to about ¾â-1â high. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until buns are golden and fluffy. Serve hot with butter.
Yield: 12 biscuits
