Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix first four ingredients.
  2. Cut in the shortening and the butter.
  3. Add baking soda to sour milk. (If you don't have sour milk or buttermilk, add 1 Tbsp of lemon juice to milk to make 1 cup, then let sit until thickened.).
  4. Mix milk and blackberries into dough.
  5. Drop onto parchment lined baking sheet. It helps to compress each scone with your hand a bit to make sure that it stays together while baking. You can also freeze unbaked scones at this point.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

This recipe was easy to make and made a delicate, tasty and wholesome scone. I used 1/2 cup of canola oil instead of the combined cup of butter and shortening, and it required a little more patting for the scones to stay together in the pan. I also used yogut instead of sour milk. I'm going to try again adding a little cinnamon instead of some of the sugar. Be sure to use parchment or oil the pan because the berries are pretty runny.

i am not a scone expert, i have only made them a couple times before. but this dough was quite a bit more wet than i expected. the end result was light and puffy like a cookie and less scone-y. they were very yummy though and the kids loved them!
