Very Berry Scones Breakfast Recipe

These lovely scones have a texture somewhere between a homemade biscuit and cookie, with just enough sweetness to use as a nice side or to eat alone. Great with apple butter or other jams.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp shortening
  • ¾-1 cup finely chopped dried berries
  • ¾ cup cream
  • 1 egg
  • 3-4 tsp any flavor of jelly (optional)

Preheat oven to 375° F. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugars. Mix well. Cut in the butter and shortening. Stir and fluff in the dried berries.

In a separate bowl, combine cream, egg, and jelly (if using), mixing well. Fold into dry ingredients and mix just until moistened. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Pat into a circle and score wedges, or cut into biscuit-size rounds. Bake no longer than 15 minutes! Transfer immediately onto cooling rack, or bake on grid baking sheet to keep bottoms from over-browning.

Yield: 8 scones
