My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Berry Scones


Berry Scones

My husband had been begging me to make this recipe for weeks.  It was actually the second Fabulous Food Friday that I posted and I hadn't made it for years!  Sometimes your favorite recipes get lost in the shuffle of new-must-try recipes.  This one is a classic keeper, though.  An old-must-try-again-and-again recipe!

Makes 12 Scones

4 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 sticks cold butter (sliced into 10-12 slices)
3/4 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 egg
2 1/2 cups berries (blueberries, raspberries and/or blackberries), divided
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk

Mix all dry ingredients in a mixer. Add cold butter. Mix on low until pea size and still some small butter pieces are evident. Mix buttermilk, 3/4 cup cream and egg in separate bowl. Slowly pour into dry mix, on low speed. Mix briefly until combined. Do not over beat. {I used my hands for all therapy!} Turn out onto floured surface and gently knead dough 4-5 times. Cut in half. Roll out half of the dough to about 1" thick. Pour 3/4 cup berries over dough and fold over. Roll about once again to 1" thick circle and cut into 6 wedges. Repeat with remaining dough. Place on greased cookie sheet. Brush with a little more cream and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 425 for 13-18 minutes, until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes and pour over glaze.  Let them cool another 10 minutes and glaze again.

*You can use fresh or frozen berries. I had a frozen tri-berry mix I bought at Costco that worked really well. Just make sure you thaw them before hand.
