♥ Basil Marmalade Scones ♥

•2 cups all-purpose flour
•3 tablespoons sugar
•2 teaspoons baking powder
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•3 tablespoons cold butter
•3 tablespoons minced fresh basil or 1 tablespoon dried basil
•2 eggs
•1/3 cup fat-free milk
•1/3 cup orange marmalade

•In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in basil. Whisk eggs and milk; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 5 times.

• Divide dough in half. Transfer one portion to a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Pat into a 7-in. circle. Spread marmalade to within 1/2 in. of edge. Pat remaining dough into a 7-in. circle. Place over marmalade; seal edges. Cut into eight wedges, but do not separate.

• Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
