  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. Place all topping ingredients in a bowl; mix well. Set aside.
  3. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in another bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Combine sour cream, egg and almond extract in another bowl; mix until smooth. Stir into flour mixture just until moistened. Stir in cherries.
  5. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8-10 times until smooth, adding a small amount of flour, if necessary.
  6. Divide dough in half. Pat each half into a 7 inch circle. Place 2 inches apart onto large ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle topping evenly over dough. Score each half into 8 wedges; do not separate. Bake 25-30 minutes or until scones are lightly browned. Cool 15 minutes; separate scones.
  7. Store leftover scones in airtight container at room temperature.
