I have tried it and the best part was the apricots. Sorry very boring , non flavored scones

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.
