Berry Scones

Makes 12 mid size scones


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • Pinch of salt (optional; some say it enhances the flavour)

  • 30gr butter (less than ¼ cup)

  • ½ cup milk

  • ½ cup water


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees (convection, if possible)

  2. Sift flour and salt together in a large bowl. Add chunks of butter and rub flour and pieces of butter together to create a coarse, meal like texture.

  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and add milk and water.

  4. Add one cup of your favourite berries (fresh or frozen blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, or a mix)

  5. Mix with a spatula (or your hands) until a dough is formed. (do NOT over-mix; scones will come out better if undermixed) Knead GENTLY either in the bowl or onto a board/counter

  6. You may either roll the dough gently with a rolling pin at this point and use a glass to make round buns. I personally like to tear a small fistful at one time and place on top of a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper) I find the scones come out more “natural” looking this way. Place about an inch apart

  7. Glaze with milk and put into pre-heated oven. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Take out and place on wire rack and cool

  8. Enjoy!
