How to make Simple White Chocolate Blackberry Scones

To start, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Then, combine your dry ingredients in a bowl: flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add very cold butter cut into chunks into dry ingredients. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until it is a course meal. It will look similar to a crumb topping. This can be done with two forks, a pastry blender, or hands (if you work fast since you want the butter to stay as cold as possible).

Then, in a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk and vanilla. Next, pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated. Next, gently fold in the blackberries and white chocolate chips. The blackberries will break apart slightly (that’s okay).

To give these scones a rustic look they are made similar to drop cookies. Scoop the scones with a large cookie scoop about 1/4-1/3 cup size. If you don’t have a scoop simply divide the dough into 10 scones. Don’t worry about these looking perfect. Next, place on a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Store leftover scones in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

What happened to my scones?

Scones are simple however also easy to “mess up”. Here are a couple of common mistakes to avoid:

  • Make sure the butter is super cold and does not get over worked. If the butter ends up warm or melted the scones will not be flaky.
  • Do not overmix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. This can make the dough tough resulting in a less tender scone. Mix it until is just incorporated.
  • Use parchment paper under the scones. Parchment paper will keep the scones from sticking to the pan and falling apart- especially when berries and chocolate are added in!

Follow these directions and you are sure to have a delicious scone!
