Sunday Sweets: {Dried Cherry and Pistachio Scones}

Happy Sunday all!
It would be a whole lot happier if my Spartans were advancing to the final four, but C'est La Vie:(
I've given up sweets for lent, but a breakfast scone isn't really a sweet...right?  
 I love baking treats, but I especially love to take my sweet treats to people I love.  A family friend lost a loved one this week and these seemed like the perfect treat to take to them to help brighten their day.  The kids were along for the ride when I dropped everything off, and it was a great to show them this small act of kindness.  I'm always trying to find ways to show them how you can be thoughtful.
These were easy friends...and don't forget the orange glaze on top, it makes the scones but doesn't make them too sweet.
And let me tell you this game changing tip for cutting butter to make your baking life easier!  Freeze your butter and grate it on the larger side of a cheese grater, then stir into the flour.  Hello?!?  It was that simple!
