  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a large cookie sheet with no-stick cooking spray. Combine flour and sugar in large bowl; mix well. Cut in 1/2 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in apricots.
  2. Beat egg in 1-cup measuring cup. Add enough buttermilk to egg to make 1 cup. Stir in almond extract. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture; stir gently until soft dough forms. Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls about 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Brush scones with 2 tablespoons melted butter. Serve warm or cool.

I modified the original recipe so it's not a 5-star but I loved the final product. After reviewing other comments, I added 2 things - double (triple) the almond extract and 3-4 oz of almond paste. My almond paste was frozen, so I shaved them and mixed them into the flour/butter/sugar mix. Please note that almond paste has sugar so you may want to reduce the amount of sugar. The scones were pretty and yummy; apricot and almond are good comb together.

It, surprisingly, didn't taste like apricots or almonds. I tried topping it with an apricot preserve & powdered sugar glaze. Didn't really fix the bland flavor but it helped with the boring appearance.
