Lime Cherry Berry Scones
Vanilla Lime Glaze

This recipe calls for a favorite of ours:
Cherryland's Best Dried Cherry Berry Mix.
It is a blend of dried cherries, cranberries and blueberries.
Cherry Berry Mix can be used in just about everything.

Cherryland's Best,
is a family owned Wisconsin company.
It began making Door County Cherry Juice products in 1944.

Door County is well known as a beautiful vacation spot,
producing delicious wine and fish boils but
Door County is also known for being an excellent
place for growing Montmorency (tart) Cherries.
If at all possible,
plan a "field trip" to Door County in the spring.
There you can see all of the beautiful cherry trees in bloom.
It's a beautiful sight to see on a warm spring day and
the sweet scent of cherry blossoms fills the spring air.......
