Scone Preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut the margarine into the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt with a pastry blender in a large bowl until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in the apricots and vanilla milk chips. Stir in the egg and just enough half-and-half so that the dough leaves the side of the bowl and forms a ball. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface; gently roll in flour to coat. Knead lightly 10 times. Pat or roll into an 8-inch circle on an ungreased cookie sheet. Cut into 8 wedges, but do not separate. Sprinkle with sugar if desired. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown. Immediately remove from the cookie sheet; carefully separate the wedges.
Serve warm.
