These are my famous blackberry/blueberry scones! I have had customers beg me for the recipe, but I could not share it with them while I was selling them. Now I am sharing it with you! I love baking my scones round, many people cut triangles, but I love them round, so that is how I make them! lol
Try them, you will love them!!
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- blue1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 cup cold butter, grated
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 cup frozen blueberries (it is very important to use frozen blueberries and blackberries)
For the glaze:
- 1/2 stick butter
- 1/2 cup honey
First, preheat your oven to 350*
Now prepare your baking sheets by lining with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper, lightly sprayed with pan spray.
Now place your flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda into a large bowl, then whisk together. Make a well in the middle and grate your cold butter into the middle. Now mix the butter with the dry ingredients, I use my hands.
Now make another well in the middle of the flour/butter mixture. Pour in your heavy cream, egg and vanilla into the well…break your egg up by using a fork. Then use a rubber spatula to mix it into the flour. It will get really thick and somewhat hard to mix, but keep working on it, it will come together. When you have the cream and egg blended in, I use my hands…it is messy, but works great!
Now add your frozen blackberries and blueberries and mix them in. Now turn your dough out onto a floured surface. Pat it out to about 3/4 inch thick.
Now use a round cutter and cut out the scones. Try to use the placement shown in the photos because they will spread some.
When you have them all cut out, brush them with heavy cream and sprinkle with sugar.
Now place the scones into the hot oven
Bake for 15 minutes, halfway through the baking switch the pans around, even if you have a convection oven.
While the scones are baking, melt the butter and honey into a pan and bring to a boil.
When the scones come out of the oven, brush each scone with the honey/butter mixture.
Now let them cool on a cooling rack.
Now grab a cup of coffee and some scones then enjoy!!
