Comfort: That word has so many definitions for different people. For me, my ultimate comfort is Saturday morning. Wrapped in a fuzzy blanket on the couch, a cup of hot coffee in hand, and a delicious pastry at my side. No rush, just cuddling with my babies and basking in two days free of work and responsibility. Perfect comfort for me.

These scones make the perfect lazy weekend morning snack. So tender, with the perfect crumb. The berries and lime zest add the perfect amount of tart to go with the sweet!

These freeze fantastic, just heat in the microwave for 30 seconds and they will be just as delicious for a quick weekday morning treat.

Blackberry Lime Scones

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • zest of one lime
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pint blackberries*
    Glaze
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons lime juice, plus more if needed.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Add the blackberries, tossing to coat. Shred the cold butter with a box grater. Add to the flour mixture and toss gently. Place bowl in the freezer to keep cold. Mix together the cream, lime juice, lime zest and egg with a fork. Place in fridge to keep cold. Line a baking sheet with silicone mat or parchment paper. Add cream and egg mixture to the flour. Stir just until combined.
  • On a well floured surface, knead the scone dough just until combined. Press dough into a 1 1/2 inch thick circle. Cut into eight pieces with a sharp knife, or into circles using a biscuit cutter. Place on cookie sheet, if desired brush with additional cream. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden around edges. Move to wire rack to cool.
  • To make glaze, mix the powdered sugar and lime juice until thick but pour-able. Pour glaze over scones, allow to set before serving.
  • *Frozen blackberries can be used, do not thaw.
