    Just use the basic scone recipe and add cherries.
    Basic scone recipe is:

    v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}
    o\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}
    w\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);}
    .shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);}





    Ingredients:200g SR flour
    1 teaspoonful of baking powder
    25g butter
    25g caster sugar
    120ml milk approx
    50g of sultanas can be added to the mixture or omit the sugar and add 75g grated cheese.
    1. Light the oven 200C, Gas mark 8.
    2. Sieve the flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl. Rub in the butter.
    3. Add the sugar and mix lightly, make a well in the centre and add most of the milk.
    4. Mix to a soft dough with a palette knife, adding the rest of the milk if necessary.
    5. Place the dough on a floured surface and lightly knead. Using the flat of your hands, pat out to 2cm thickness.
    6. Cut into rounds using a cutter and place on a greased baking tray.
    7. Bake in the oven for about 12 mins. until well-risen and golden brown.
    8. Place on a cooling tray, serve split in half with butter and jam, cream can be served as well.

    Works well every time.
