  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries

Instructions:

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and gently stir until just combined.
  6. Gently fold in the blackberries, being careful not to crush them.
  7. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and pat it into a 1-inch thick round.
  8. Using a sharp knife or a biscuit cutter, cut the round into wedges or circles.
  9. Place the scones on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Allow the scones to cool slightly before serving.

FAQs:

Q: Can I use frozen blackberries?

A: Yes! If using frozen, toss them in a bit of flour before adding to the dough to prevent excessive bleeding.

Q: Can I make the dough ahead of time?

A: Absolutely! Shape the dough, wrap it tightly, and refrigerate. Bake when ready.
