When Is A Scone Not A Scone? Berry Scones Recipe

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.


Place stick of butter in freezer for 1/2 - 1 hour prior to starting. 

ingredients2 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.
