Triple Berry Scones

I've never been a big fan of scones.
They are kind of in the same category as biscotti for me...
dry, crumbly and not much flavor.
Maybe I've never had good ones, 
but I wasn't dying to try to make them myself.

That is until The Pioneer Woman posted a recipe for Mixed Berry Scones.  They looked SO good and I had all of the ingredients I needed to make them.  I made some changes and ended up with some really tasty treats to share with you today.

These Triple Berry Scones would be PERFECT for July 4th weekend.
They are festive and delicious.

Ingredients:
2 c flour
1/4 c sugar
1 1/2 t baking powder
sprinkle of salt
1 stick cold butter
3/4 c Vitamin D milk
1 egg
1/2 t vanilla
2 T raspberry jelly
1/4 c chopped strawberries*
1/4 c chopped blueberries
1/4 c raspberries*
* I used frozen berries, thawed them and drained the water off

Glaze ingredients:
3 T thawed raspberries + raspberry juice from thawing
2 T melted butter
3 cups powdered sugar
a splash of milk

Preheat oven to 350
Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powdered and salt into a large bowl.  Add the butter and use a pastry cutter to combine everything well.

 Whisk the wet ingredients together and then pour about half of it into the flour mixture.  Add in half of the berries.  Mix well and then add in the rest of the liquid and berries until fully combined.  You may need to add some more flour at this point so that you can handle the dough.  If you do add more flour be sure to add some more sugar into the mix.

 Form your scone dough into a flattened circle on a greased cookie sheet.
Cut into triangles and spread apart.


Combine the ingredients for the glaze and let them set while the scones bake.

Watching our "triangles" bake.
I kept trying to convince Olive they were scones, but she kept correcting me.

 Let the scones cool most of the way and then top with glaze.
I put the glaze in a ziploc bag, cut off one tiny corner and the squeezed the raspberry glaze on top of each scone.  Worked perfectly and the clean up with easy.





Happy Fourth of July weekend!!
