With fruit trees in the west booming with these sweet treats, take the time to whip up fun and new recipes. I thought you might like these with your eggs and bacon this morning. If you already had breakfast...shame on you...you should have checked in with me first! Just kidding. But make sure you make them soon, they are super yummy.

½ tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Baking powder
¼ tsp. Baking soda
½ stick butter

Sift the dry ingredients together. Cut the butter into the dry mixture with a pastry blender or fork until resembles oatmeal. Add the milk, syrup, and apricots. Work with your hands , quickly and bring the dough the dough together (it will be crumbly). Pat down until it is ½ inch thick and cut with a large biscuit cutter then cut into fourths. Place on parchment paper. Brush with an egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Bake in a 400 degree oven for ten minutes or until golden.
