Many people ask for this recipe. I found the original recipe in Bon Appetite, but over the years the recipe has morphed into my own. I use only frozen fruit as it holds up better than fresh fruit, and is more to my liking than dried fruit. But anything is possible, and I encourage you to morph my recipe into your own also!
3 cups flour
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup cold butter
1 cup frozen fruit (favorite: Marionberries)
Sift, or whisk, together: flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar
Into dry ingredients grate cold butter. Mix thoroughly.
Add frozen fruit and mix thoroughly
Whisk together buttermilk and eggs, add to dry ingredients
Mix together until you are able to place it on a well-floured counter surface.
Kneed, adding more flour as needed, until you can form a flat disc of dough (about 8-10 inches in diameter)
Cut into 8 wedges. Place on greased cookie sheet, well apart.
bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
Prepare glaze: Using fruit juice (favorite: orange) and powdered sugar, mix juice into sugar until a nice glaze forms. Ususally about 1/4 cup of juice to 2 1/2 cups sugar.
Drizzle glaze over warm scones. Best served that day, even better served warm!
