Gifts from the kitchen, Blackberry Scones with Lemon Glaze

Tuesday was HH’s birthday! He always buys his own gift…let’s just say that he must think he was an extra good boy this year

Since I didn’t do any shopping,  I treated him to something special from the kitchen~

I’ve never made scones, so I thought I would give it a try~he loves a sweet breakfast bite

This recipe is adapted from Betty Crocker, who doesn’t trust good ole Betty?


You mix the dry and wet ingredients separately, and grate frozen butter into the dry mix


very easy!


Then add the wet mix and the berries


mix until it forms a dough…

it is sticky and lumpy, but turn it out onto a piece of parchment and form a dough round


The berries will be semi crushed after forming dough so push some whole berries down into the top of dough round for looks if you want~


Cut into 8 wedges, and separate slightly~

if you can’t separate wedges now, start baking and then  after 10-15 minutes remove from oven and then separate wedges so the insides will get cooked

Once the scones are done, make a simple glaze with fresh lemon juice and powdered sugar


Drizzle over scones


Store scones tightly covered

    I am about to have my first cup of coffee, and it would be very nice to have one of your scones as well. Lucky hubby.

  5. These look luscious! My blackberry bush has yielded quite a few this year. I have given them away or frozen them, not being ambitious enough to cook very much yet. Happy Birthday to HH!
