Instructions

Mixed Berry Scones

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl and mix to combine.
  • Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or fork until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and 1/2 cup of the buttermilk.
  • Mix the egg and buttermilk into the flour, adding extra buttermilk as needed, to get the dough to just stick together.
  • Gently fold in the berries. It's okay if some break.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat.
  • Shape the dough into 2 round circles, about 1/2 to 3/4-inch high on the baking sheet.
  • Place the entire baking sheet in the refrigerator to chill for about 30 minutes or until the dough is very cold.
  • Remove the tray from the refrigerator and cut the dough into 6 triangles. Separate them at least 1-2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottoms. Remove to a cooling rack.

Vanilla Glaze

  • Combine the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until well combined.
  • Drizzle as much of the glaze as you'd like over the scones.

Notes

Tips and Techniques

  • Ensure that your butter is very cold when you are making scones.
  • Don’t skip the step where you place the shaped dough in the refrigerator until it’s very cold. Cold dough rises better, so it’s important to keep the dough cold until it goes into the oven for the best scones.
  • For extra sweetness and a sparkling topping, you can add coarse sugar to the tops after you glaze them.
  • Store leftover scones in an air-tight container at room temperature. Use within 1-2 days for best results.
