I have never been a fan of scones, finding them dry and unappealing for the most part. Last weekend my husband decided to make scones, much to my delight. NOT. I wasn't delighted, I was confused...why would anyone want to make scones?
Well he did...and they were fabulous! I don't know how he does it, but he has the uncanny ability of searching through recipes and combining them to create a great end result.
BERRY SCONES by Rick
Place stick of butter in freezer for 1/2 - 1 hour prior to starting.
2 C flour (we used all purpose)
1/4 C sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick butter (8 TBSP)
3/4 C blueberries
3/4 C strawberries (about 5 berries) cut into small pieces
1 large egg
2/3 C milk (we used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Use a grater to grate the butter into the flour mixture. Work butter in, using fingers to create a crumbly mixture. Add berries.
Whisk together egg, milk and vanilla. Use a fork to mix milk mixture into flour mixture forming large clumps. Press dough together and form a ball.
Place dough on a lightly floured surface and form into an 8" circle about 3/4" thick. Sprinkle lightly with sugar and cinnamon.
Cut circle into 8 triangles and place 1" apart on lightly greased cookie sheet (we used parchment paper).
Bake about 18 minutes.
