Apricot Walnut Chocolate Scones

I  really love scones, almost in all kinds, I find the texture and consistency great, a mixture between a cookie and a bisquet, they´re getting popular here in Mexico, so I hope you enjoy this recipe

280 grs. flour
66 grs. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt 
 90 grs. Good quality butter (frozen in small pieces) 
¾ cup buttermilk
2 egg yolks
1 Tbsp. vanilla 
 100 grs. white chocolate callets
100grs. Chopped walnuts
90 grs. Chopped dry apricot

Finely chop the walnuts and dry stir the egg yolk and buttermilk together.
Combine the flour, baking powder and salt and sugar together in a large bowl. Add the frozen butter cut in small cubes, pulse a few times the food processor until the mixture ressembles coarse crumbs.

Pour the liquid ingredients in the bowl and the apricot, walnuts and chocolate pieces and stir just until the dough comes together.I usually do everything by hand but you can use a spatula,Gently and quickly knead the dough and turn it onto a floured board. Roll out the dough to about 1 inch thick and cut in triangles

Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for about 25 minutes

Preheat oven to 400.
