Triple Berry Scones

Sometimes I like to send a little extra treat for Tiffany and Jessi when I deliver dinner.  Tonight I chose to make scones for their breakfasts tomorrow.  All they have to do is lightly warm the scones in the microwave and sip a delicious cup of coffee or tea!  


1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 Tbsp. cold butter
1/2 cup fresh or frozen & thawed blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, cranberries or whatever berry is your favorite  (I baked mine with the triple berries frozen mix from Costco, thawed first)
1/2 cup cream, buttermilk, OR non-fat plain or vanilla yogurt (this is what I used)


Preheat oven to 425.

Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Add in the butter, slice by slice, mixing as you go.
Mix in the yogurt, blending well
Gently stir in the fruit
Form dough into a ball, place on a greased/cooking sprayed baking sheet and pat down into a circle about 1/2 to 1/4 inches thick.
Sprinkle with sugar and cut into 8 segments.
Bake at 425 degrees for about 16-20 minutes or until edges are slightly crisp and the top is lightly browned. Drizzle icing on top after cooled if desired.
